This is great for Thanksgiving dessert and makes a good gift.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The only thing that could make this pumpkin bread better is to pair it with a steaming cup of hot coffee! It's a very easy pumpkin bread recipe that's dense, yet airy and fluffy. We opted to use walnuts for the chopped nuts because we like how walnuts and pumpkin pair together. But, use a nut you prefer - pecans would be great! A delicious treat for fall.
