Delicious pumpkin flavor that really complements the pecans and that touch of cinnamon. Thanks so much for sharing. I have never baked pumpkin bread before, now I am on to something! Have you ever topped the slices with cream cheese slightly sweetened with confectioner's sugar and a drop of almond oil? OOH...perfect for breakfast, snack, or dessert. **This was saved in my Top Favorite Recipes of 2008! Thanks again, WI Cheesehead!
This is very good, easy to throw together, and fairly healthful. My kids liked it well enough, despite the lack of chocolate. ;-) Next time I might reduce the amount of oil and increase the amount of pumpkin -- I think it would probably come out just as moist, and I love pumpkin flavor. This will make a yummy treat for breakfasts -- I think I might toast slices and put peanut butter or jam on them! Thanks for sharing this recipe, WIC!
