Down East Maine Pumpkin Bread

I sure do love me some pumpkin bread! This recipe got awesome reviews so I tried it. And yes, this is some great pumpkin bread! I added some chopped walnuts to mine. This makes 3 loaves, but I poured some into 1 loaf pan and poured the rest into a bundt cake pan. That turned out fine! The bread is very flavorful and moist, and a friend that tried it said it “tastes like fall”.
