1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9×5 loaf pans very well with non stick baking spray.
In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices. Whisk together to combine, then set aside.
In a large mixer bowl, combine the butter and sugar and mix just until combined.
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until well combined after each addition.
Turn the mixer to medium speed and beat until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
6 Add the pumpkin purée and beat until well combined. The mixture may like a little curled and separated.
Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed just until combined. Do not over mix. If you need to stir it a bit more, use a spatula and do it gently by hand.
Divide the batter evenly between the two cake pans and bake for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove the loaves from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Recipe adapted from my honey whole wheat pumpkin bread and healthy banana bread.
STORAGE SUGGESTIONS: This bread is moist, so it will keep for just two or three days at room temperature. Store it in the refrigerator for five to seven days, or in the freezer for up to three months or so. I like to slice the bread before freezing and defrost individual slices, either by letting them rest at room temperature or lightly toasting them.
