Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread

This recipe is quite possibly the easiest one I have ever found! You literally put all the ingredients into the bowl of your mixer and turn it on. Once it's all mixed you pour it into a loaf pan and bake it. Awesome!
The Ingredients
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 stick (1/2 cup) softened butter
2 large eggs
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice **
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan. Combine all ingredients in a large mixer bowl.
Turn on the mixer to medium and when it's well mixed, pour into prepared pan.

Bake 45 - 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Cool in loaf pan for about 10 minutes, then turn out and cool completely on a wire rack.

This bread is so good as is but you could add chocolate chips or pecans and it would be even better. My hubby likes it plain so this first loaf I made that way for him. It is so wonderful the next morning after the flavors have had a chance to merge..... or fresh from the oven with a little butter spread on it.... or some cream cheese..... or some peanut butter..... or some Nutella..... oh, boy! I better go make another loaf :) 

**If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own.
**UPDATE** So yummy with 1 cup of semi-sweet chips added just before pouring into loaf pan!
