Iced Pumpkin Bread

Being that it is October, I decided I wanted to make something with pumpkin. After a short brainstorming session with C, we came up with Pumpkin Bread. I started with a favorite banana bread recipe and added and subtracted here and there.

This looks fantastic!
I made it just like the recipe calls for except i added an 1/8tsp ground cloves and an 1/8tsp nutmeg to flavor it more like pumpkin pie.
I also did a Brown Sugar Frosting for it since i didn't have any cream cheese.
Wonderful! Thanks so much!
