Recipe Notes

When using loaf pans that are 9″x5″ I suggest a baking time of 50 to 60 minutes. However when using 8.5″ x 4.5″ loaf pans you may need to increase the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes.

If you don’t have time to make your own pumpkin spice, use 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves.
