This bread was nasty. I wish I had paid attention to the reviews before I wasted all the ingredients. The batter was stiff and the finished product had no flavor. I cubed it and left it outside for the birds and squirrels.
I am glad I did not double the ingredients to make more bread. That was HORRIBLE! Bread is for eating, bricks are for building.
My mother's pumpkin bread is SOOOO much better!!! It smelled good but it was gross!!!! It had little taste!
