Pumpkin Spice Loaf

Pumpkin Spice LoafI’ve had a recipe written down on a scrap piece of paper, tucked into my recipe book for ages.  I got it from a relative, with big promises of making it one day, and it never happened. While cruising Pinterest I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Loaf and took it as a sign from The Great Pumpkin that it was time.

Truth be told, I’ve never made a loaf beyond banana bread.  I guess it’s all the same in the end, no?  In any case, with a new stand-mixer to test out, I had the perfect excuse to pull out this recipe and try it myself.

I could smack myself for waiting this long.  Can you freeze pumpkin puree?  Because I want to use the remainder of the can I opened to make another loaf tomorrow.  And the day after that.
