Made for the Sweet December event & to freeze so I could include 1/2 loaf in each of my assorted X-Mas food gifts for DH's family. This 1st loaf is a tad shy because I was not at all shy w/my taste test(s). I hope to do better as more loaves are made, but this is just so good that it will likely keep challenging my willpower. My pan size was different than what was suggested, so the loaf stature was smaller. I was shy about the nuts atop the bread since I am trying to please a multi-generational group. I opted to use the nuts only as part of the batter & chopped them very fine. Thx for sharing this excellent recipe w/us, Doug. I expect to get requests for the recipe & encores for the future. :-)
Mmmmmm, I made a half amount of the recipe and made 4 large muffins with it. Perfect for me over the naxt few days (DH won't eat pumpkin either). I "sampled" one about 20 mins out of the oven with a mug of hot cocoa. Oh my goodness, winter bliss. Great muffins, moist and fluffy with a lot of flavor. Used Splenda for the sugar.

Oh my, soooo good!!! Can't believe I am only the 2nd reviewer for this wonderful bread. I only made 1/2 of the recipe, one loaf, as I had a partial can of pumpkin leftover from another recipe and was very liberal with the mini chips and pecans on top. I just loved that the the pecans get toasted on the top while the bread cooks. Plan to do this in the future for my breads that contain nuts! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
I've already been baking up a storm when it comes to pumpkin this winter holiday season, & always enjoy trying out new recipes ~ Great topping on this particular pumpkin loaf! I have several friends I know will enjoy this, too, & I plan to make a handful of gift loaves within the next 3 weeks! [Made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe tag]
