Honey-ginger glazed pumpkin bread

When I saw this recipe over at Pam's blog last week, I knew I'd be giving it a try this weekend. It was super easy and very very tasty. I did modify the recipe a little to fit what I had on hand and I also decided to give it a honey ginger glaze at the end.
Honey-Ginger Glazed Pumpkin Bread (adapted from For the Love of Cooking)
Makes one loaf
1 can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 1/3 cups of granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups + 1 tb flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and dust with flour. In a large bowl combine the first four ingredients. Mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients and stir. Add the dry mixture into the pumpkin mixture. Add nuts and raisins. Mix well. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Original instructions say to bake for 55-65 minutes, but it took 75 minutes in my oven. I'd say bake 65 minutes and check with a toothpick. It's done when pick comes out clean.

For the glaze:
Combine the following in a small saucepan and stir over high heat until it reaches a boil. Brush over the bread once it's been removed from the loaf pan. Allow to cool before serving

1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp ground ginger

Yes I couldn't believe how amazingly easy it was and it completely satisfies the cravings for both banana bread and pumpkin pie simultaneously. It's a definite keeper!! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
