Gram's Pumpkin Bread

Yeah, I finally came across a bread recipe of my Grammie's and I am sure glad I did. This bread has a wonderful flavor with the addition of dates and nuts too. I just love the smell of cinnamon and cloves when it's baking....makes you want to slice up a piece and add a little butter right when you take it out of the oven. I love the color of this bread too. It sure makes some beautiful loaves that would be great for gift giving during the holidays.

Hope you enjoy my Grammie's recipe for Pumpkin Bread.
