This bread was so yummy! It had an intense curry, cumin and onion flavour, which went so well with the mashed pumpkin and cheese. Mmmmm! Next time I might try adding some garlic to it as well. I think that would be a nice addition.
The bread was moist in the centre with a nice crust on top. I baked it in muffin tins as I didnt have the time to wait for a full loaf to cook through and that worked out nicely.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this awesome recipe here with us, love4culinary!

This is a wonderful fragrant & rich bread. I love the spices involved in this, and found the instruction both excellent and easy to follow. The loaf itself is the most lovely of colors, with its pumpkin orange and the flecks of green from the pepper. The cheese and onion melt away and leave the hint of their flavors deliciously behind. There are many levels of flavor to this bread. It is a simple recipe, yet a very complex result. Every bite is a rich and fulfilling experience. Truly wonderful!! Thanks for sharing this jewel! (BTW, its May in the N. Eastern US - I used canned pumpkin but will try my own in the Fall season)

Similar to southern cornbread only with cumin. The reason my bread is yellow instead of orange is because, I could NOT buy pumpkin in any version, so I pureed part of a butternut squash. Used jalapeno instead of serano. Jalapeno has less heat than serano and this had plenty of heat for us made with a milder pepper. I did not spray my pan as well as I should have so lost a lot of that wonderful outer crust when I took it out of pan.

Ok, I finally made this today. NO subs or anything:) I think I only used 1 tsp of serrano pepper instead of 1 1/2. I didnt wear gloves either..but I remember someone saying when cutting peppers you should. Anywho, back to the story at hand. Got out all my ingredients, I toasted the cumin seeds, everything. Put it in the oven and out came the yummiest, curriest bread I've ever made! (Yes I know curriest is not a word!) I am really glad I took the leap to make this bread and if you like curry or pumpkin or indian food (did I cover everything there?), I recommend it highly! Thanks, from one Angela to another!

I made this to take to a potluck and was very pleased. The bread was popular and had great flavor! Since the bread is ‘crumbly,’ the next time I make the bread for a potluck, I plan to make individual mini muffins to make it easier to serve. I haven't had a chance to experiment yet, but I think that leftovers would be a delicious addition to stuffing for chicken breasts or pork chops. Thank you for posting - this recipe is a treasure!
