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! Made for My 3 Chefs October 2013.
