Pumpkin Walnut Spice Bread

Pumpkin Walnut Spice Bread

I simply love this pumpkin spice bread recipe!  It has the perfect blend of spices and is so moist.  I’m a huge fan of a good banana nut bread but I’d say this pumpkin walnut bread knocks that out of first place.

The original recipe doesn’t call for nuts but I decided to add a small amount of walnuts to half of the recipe.  The recipe makes two loaves so I made one with walnuts and one without.  After tasting both loaves, I think I prefer it with the nuts.  But if you don’t care for nuts in breads, you can omit it from the recipe.
