As fall is fast approaching I have been digging through my recipes for things of a fall and winter nature. This is a good one! I have never had it fail and it always tastes wonderful. I believe this came from NESTLE's site

I was really happy to find a pumpkin bread recipe that doesn't call for tons of sugar and oil! It's very moist and tastes like (gasp!) pumpkin! The pie spice is just the right amount so you still get loads of pumpkin flavor and not spice-cake overload. Doubled the recipe, and the only change I made was to use 3 whole eggs instead of 2 eggs and 2 whites. If I made a single batch, I'd probably just skip the extra egg white (I hate having leftover partial eggs, but that's just me). I didn't do any nuts, either (didn't have any on hand!), but I bet they'd be really tasty.

Also, I used 8x4 loaf pans and they were a bit over-full (didn't run over much, but a little), so if you're wondering if this will fit in an 8x4 pan, yes, but barely; better to use the 9x5 if at all possible.

This pumpkin bread was awesome! It was very moist and was packed full of flavor. It had just the right amount of pumpkin spice so that it didn't overpower the bread. I included 1/2 cup of English walnuts in the mixture and am planning on making this very soon to include golden raisins. I made a reduced fat honey nut cream cheese which really made this bread very tasty. Simply delicious!
This recipe is a keeper! Thank you Annacia for posting!
