Pumpkin Nut Bread Recipe

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

"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!"
