This is the most amazingly moist pumpkin bread. It's great with just the traditional walnuts. It's surprisingly good with dates as well.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This moist pumpkin recipe screams fall. It's soft and filled with pumpkin flavor. Perfectly spiced, it will make your kitchen smell wonderful while baking. Chopped walnuts add a nice little crunch to the bread. If you love dates, definitely add them. It's a sweet burst of flavor when you bite into a slice.

Note: We had some nuts leftover, so sprinkled them on top of the batter before baking. Super yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
