Pumpkin Spiced Pecan Loaf

This is for all you pumpkin-spice lovers out there.

Before trying this loaf, I honestly didn’t even like pumpkin – but, this recipe is a game changer. Inspired by the Pumpkin Spiced Pecan bread at Williams-Sonoma, this loaf has the same great taste at a much lower price.

As if all the above wasn’t good enough, everything pumpkin is on sale right now as Thanksgiving season comes to an end!! So get out there – you will love it, I promise!

– 2 eggs

– 1/2 cup vegetable oil
