Better than most gluten containing breads. I added pecans, and baked in 3small loaf pans for 40 min. I also used 1/4 c coconut oil to replace 1/4 c of butter. Going to get more pumpkin and make it again!

Perfect! This is simply the best gluten free banana or pumpkin bread recipe I've ever made. It's the one I'm going to stick with! I used pureed butternut squash that I froze last fall instead of pumpkin, everything else was as written. Thanks for posting. :)

Delicious! I made this today and it's almost all gone, which is quite a feat in a household where only I am GF and the others shy away from any of my "funny stuff". I ended up using about 3/4 cup pumpkin and 1/2 cup apple puree because I didn't have quite enough pumpkin, and used dairy free margarine and it was still excellent. I think next time I'll add some walnuts and perhaps some rum soaked raisins... but perhaps not! Definitely going in my Make Frequently pile.
