This recipe is sooo easy! I replaced the walnuts with pecans and added "insurance" that my family would eat it....1/2 C. mini chocolate chips. Love it. It even got rave reviews from my daughter's friends at school lunch, and you know what a tough crowd that can be!
Wow, wow, wow! What a great tasting pumpkin cake recipe! LOVED this! Its perfect for autumn, smells, tastes and looks sooo good!
I made half the recipe in my small loaf pan, which worked out perfectly. I made a couple of changes due to what I had on hand and the bread came out fudgy soft in the middle with a lovely crunch to the top and such a lovely spicy pumpkin flavour. Ill definitely make this again!
Here are my changes:
I used only 1/4 cup of sugar, in place of the mix I used 1 c whole spelt flour 1/2 c spelt flour 3/4 ts baking powder and a dash of salt. I needed to add 1/8 cup more milk and in place of the pumpkin pie filling I used home-made pureed pumpkin with added spices (no sugar). Sooo good!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a true winner with us, Acadia!

Easy peasy, moist and delicious. How can you go wrong! I used 1.5 tsp of the spice and E-Z Low Fat Bisquick Mix for the biscuit mix. No mixer was needed, I just mixed the wet ingredients and then added the dry and spoon stirred. As I said, easy peasy. :D
I love pumpkin bread and this was delicious. The biscuit mix is such an unusual ingredient, but it really worked. Would be great for a Thanksgiving treat.
This turned out wonderfully, made over the weekend and DH was very pleased ~ he's a huge pumpkin fan! I did use pecans rather than walnuts (personal preference), and an organic all-purpose biscuit/baking mix. We loved it. Took one loaf to work, and it disappeared! A quick and easy keeper bread recipe! Thanks Acadia, made for POTLUCK TAG, Feb 2009.
An interesting textured bread, what with the biscuit mix, and very nice tasting! I did change it just a bit by using 3/4 cup of the walnuts & adding a similar amount of dried cranberries! One loaf went as a gift while the other stayed right here for us to enjoy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
