      Very tasty pumpkin bread! Like another reviewer I had to add more pumpkin to make the batter come together. I left out the coconut; I baked in 4 ceramic mini-loaf pans and used the cooking time specified for baking in the cans. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      This bread is amazing, and would have been a total 5 stars, but I had to add an extra 1/2 cup of pumpkin just to get the dry ingredients to come together slightly. I have made this 3 times now, the last time using chopped apple instead of the pears b/c it is all I had on hand. It is delicious! I used a loaf pan because I didnt have enough cans. I had to leave out the pecans because DH wont eat them :-P Otherwise I followed to the "T". Thanks!!!! Delicious!
