Pan De Calabaza (That's spanish for DROOL)

As soon as the air gets crisp enough to call it Autumn, my taste buds demand pumpkin flavored everything (except shakes, because that's just gross). I start going crazy baking pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting and, of course, a must have, pumpkin bread.
I love a good, moist, spicy pumpkin bread and my goodness, have I found it.
It seriously kicks all other pumpkin breads' butts.

I made it on Monday and it's long gone.
This recipe has already been integrated in my handy dandy recipe notebook to make over and over until I'm too old to care.
