I honestly have no idea where I got this recipe. It's been hanging out in my recipe box as long as I've been doing holiday baking and I make it every year to put in my gift baskets at Christmas. It's always a huge hit and it's a little lower cal than most pumpkin breads. Oh . . . and it's milk free for those with milk allergies! Hope you like it as much as we do!

This was really terrific pumpkin bread that was gently spiced. I was unsure as to what size loaf pan to use, and opted for 8x4-inches. The bread came out really high and took about 65 minutes to bake, so I would image a 9-inch pan would be more appropriate. I did add chopped walnuts, and the end result was a tasty fall treat!
