Down East Pumpkin Bread

I'm sorry for my long absence - my college class load is much larger this semester, and it's been keeping me busy!!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - I love autumn!  Walking the greyhounds is so much fun when it's cool out, and the leaves swirl around us.  My inner baking goddess wakes up, and says, "Let's bake!"  I can't get enough pumpkin-flavored treats in the fall (hello, pumpkin spice latte!), and this recipe is a doozy!

It's from Tried and True Favorites, published by Allrecipes.  It's moist and hearty, with a lovely spice blend that includes cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.  (The original recipe also calls for ground cloves, but I omitted it.)
