I wish I could give this 3-1/2 stars. I would prefer a stronger pumpkin flavor but it still tasted good. I halved the recipe and it made a nice 4x8 loaf and a 3x5-1/2 mini loaf. The issues I had were my own fault. I used a coconut oil based spread with some water in it to grease the pans. The loaves stuck but would not have if I had also floured them.
This is quite good. I would consider adding just a bit of pumpkin pie spice maybe, for a bolder pumpkin flavor. But the recipe is very good as written. I got two nice sized loaves (not 3, as stated in the recipe). But that worked out better for us since I wanted one for home and the other to take to a Halloween party this week. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Yummy InMyTummy. Made for Fall 2011 Pick-A-Chef.
My friend makes this every year at Thanksgiving. It's SO good... she delivered again this year!
