Pumpkin Nut Bread

Classic fall flavors of pumpkin and pecans make this from-scratch bread perfect for the season. It’s delicious when still warm from the oven, but it makes for a nice gift, too. Connie Thomas — Jensen, Utah

    Easy and very moist. I took it to work and it was gone in a flash! The house smelled so good while it was baking.

    This is not "low sodium" as claimed--the baking soda, powder,& salt equal 212.5 gms per slice, not counting any sodium from other ingredients. Be careful!

    This bread was excellent, very moist and tasty. I did add 1/2 cup of raisins and also used 1/2 cup of Spenda for Baking and 1/2 cup of sugar. I definately will make it again.
