Pumpkin Bread

In case you haven't noticed, I love pumpkin baked goods... except for pumpkin pie... This is a favorite to take VT'ing.

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 can (15 oz.) Pumpkin
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup apple juice
4 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts, divided
chocolate chips
Vanilla glaze from Pumpkin cookies (optional)

PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans.
SIFT flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt into medium bowl. Combine pumpkin, sugar, juice, eggs, oil and vanilla extract in large bowl; stir well. Stir in flour mixture and 3/4 cup nuts just until moistened. Spoon into prepared loaf pans. Sprinkle remaining nuts over top of loaves.
BAKE for 60 to 70 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
