Great pumpkin bread! The pairing of the orange and pumpkin is divine - when you open the bread you can definitely detect the faint smell of orange and to taste it, well try it and see. Sadly though, the maple flavor is lost a bit. If you want to bring it out you could do a maple glaze. I however, love orange and pumpkin together so I did an orange glaze while it was still warm. (1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, 1/4 teaspoon finely grated orange zest, 4 teaspoons orange juice) I also used 1/2 cup of Land O Lakes light butter (what's a couple more Tbsp.'s), Real Maple syrup, 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice, and substituted walnuts for the pecans as that's what I had on hand. This definitely is a bread worth making!
