I have made this several times. This recipe makes two delicious loaves of spicy pumpkin bread.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A tasty fall quick bread. There's ample pumpkin flavor, but you can also taste the clove and nutmeg. It adds a little spice to the pumpkin bread. Moist, yet dense, enjoy this with a hot cup of coffee for a nice breakfast treat. Or, it's tasty as a midday pick-me-up.
