This is a hearty quick bread with spices. Works equally well with fresh bananas.
Cream sugar, butter and eggs in large bowl.
Combine separately flour, baking powder, soda, salt and spices. Add to creamed mixture alternately with pumpkin, beginning and ending with dry ingredients (batter will be thick). Stir in nuts.
