Delicious, The best I have ever made. We love the craisins, raisins,and walnuts in it. The spices espically the ginger makes it so yummy. It is easy to make, I think it will be great toasted. Thank you, Ellie for this delicious recipe. I will be making more before Thanksgiving.

Very nice recipe! I was looking for a pumpkin bread recipe and like that this one had both craisins and raisins. I thought the spices are pretty mild. I made these in 2 small loaf pans instead of 1 larger.

Rita L (see my other recipe reviews) posted Jan 6, 2004 Fabulous! I just loved this. I used brown sugar, doubled the cinnamon and had frozen pureed baked butternut squash (in place of pumpkin)which which I defrosted and brought to room temperature before adding to butter and sugar mixture.I also used all cranraisins.Thanks for a great recipe.
