Recipe by NinnyMommy
This recipe comes from The Little Book of Christmas Joys. It is the best pumpkin bread I have ever had. Both loaves never last a few days in my house. Although allspice is optional but I never leave it out but I do leave out the pecans.

Oh boy, this is very good bread. I used my own pumpkin that I froze after halloween last year and it was great. Moist and flavorful. I made this to use with recipe #35812 and I'm so glad I did because I've found a new favorite. Thank you for posting.
