Spiced Pumpkin Nut Bread

We are still experiencing hot weather in this area with no sign of Fall.  It is still beach weather,
but I am hoping that it will cool down a bit in the following weeks.  There is usually no sign
of cool air until October here and I am already craving all things Autumn.  I decided that
I was not going to wait around for Fall, so I brought Fall into my kitchen.

I baked a Spiced Pumpkin Nut Bread.  The ingredients are at the end of this post.
To make this recipe, follow the directions below and I hope that you enjoy it.
(What is your favorite part of Autumn?)

1. MIX flour, spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
2. In another bowl, MIX pumpkin puree, brown sugar, juice, eggs, oil, and extract; mix well.  
3. Stir into the pumpkin puree bowl the flour mixture and 3/4 cup nuts until moistened.
4. SPOON into two (9 x 5-inch) greased loaf pans.  Sprinkle remaining nuts over the top of loaves.
5. BAKE in preheated 350 degrees oven for 60 - 70 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in 
the center comes out clean.  Let the bread cool in the pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove the bread from the pans onto the wire rack to cool completely.  Makes two loaves.  
Tip: Make a sweet glaze and drizzle it over the top of the bread to give it sweetness.
