This was very moist,I added a tsp. of pumpkin pie spice to the ingredients.I only got two loaves however,and I had to cook it a bit longer.But my teenage son ate a whole loaf in on sitting.Very good bread.

Well guess what? I forgot to add the water, and realised it after I had poured out a pan of mini-muffins. The muffins were actually perfect without it, luckily. I already had the rest of the batter in 2 loaf pans so I added part of the called for water to the loaf pan batter, stirred it up and moved it over to a sheet pan. There is more than one way to skin a cat. This is an excellent recipe tho' I did spice it up quite a bit with nutmeg, allspice and clove.
I will not include the water next time. The bread in the sheet pan really was too moist for me, (doesn't slice nicely) something I have not encountered before in a quick-bread, but I noticed that at least one other reviewer thought so too. I will make this again and again, sans water.
The can size is 14 oz.
