Weekend Cooking: Pumpkin-Nutella Loaf

I pinned this pumpkin-Nutella loaf a while ago. I bought a box of canned pumpkin in October thinking I would make all sorts of pumpkin dishes. This is the first thing I've made using that canned pumpkin. Only 23 more cans to go!
I made this loaf to take to a party last night. It was a huge hit. Not only did it get gobbled up, but plenty of people asked me for the recipe.
Here's the original pin:

Here's mine:
I followed her recipe exactly except I added 1/2 tsp of ginger and 1/2 tsp of cardamon. I thought the additional spice would enhance the flavor. I was right, it did. Tai's asked me to make this again so it might be my go to dessert for the holidays.
