Pumpkin Bread

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Lorrie in Montreal

I've had this recipe for years; it was given to me by a friend. This is a moist fragrant quick bread. Use what appeals to you whether it is simply dates and nuts or chocolate chips to make it your own. I have used cooked acorn squash puree in place of pumpkin puree with good results.

I roasted a sweet pumpkin and pureed the pulp in my food processor. We all loved the flavor, but will bump up the spices by half next time. (Which will be quite soon.)
