    stephanierndos's Note:

    Found the base for this Pumpkin Bread Recipe in an old Southern Living Cookbook. My 'Mom's Banana Bread' Recipe has a little 'secret' tip to making it so great - (seperating the eggs and beating the whites...). So, I put 2 and 2 together, and oila! Also, I like the rich spiciness that should accompany pumpkin dishes - thus I added the chinese 5 spice, makes it that much better! This is a great Fall / Holiday Bread -- I think you'll agree.

      The beaten egg whites do keep this light and I really liked the 5-spice powder-I even think I would add more of that and less cinnamon! Made with pecans. I omitted the flax seed, as I was out, but it think it would be a nice addition. I used dried cranberries. Very tasty and moist bread.
