Pumpkin was just made for quick breads. The texture and flavor both lend themselves well to this simple fall treat that’s packed with spices, brown sugar and pecans.
This bread is a perfect snack or even a great breakfast option. For a special treat, heat it up just a bit and spread on a little extra butter or a bit of cream cheese.

In a large bowl, beat eggs lightly with a fork. Add butter, pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until almost blended. Stir in pecans.
