This pumpkin loaf has wonderful flavour and great texture, and is easy to make. I love the combination of spices. From Williams-Sonoma, the recipe came with a pumpkin loaf pan and I'm posting it for someone who lost the recipe.

I have made this recipe when I bought the Pumpkin bread pan from Willliams & Sanoma. It was a big hit with mhy family but I lost the pan packaging and thus the recipe. I have looked for it each year at this time. One more attempt and I found it on this website!. I could not be happier!!! I will surprise my family with it once more! Thank you!
