      This is truly a wonderful tasting bread. I substituted 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of white and it turned out moist and delicious. This reminds me more of Boston brown bread than pumpkin bread. Thanks for posting!

      YUMMY and FANTASTIC, Very moist and great taste, very easy to make and followed exact instructions. I used raisins instead of the cranberries, my husband and mother-in-law and me just loved it. Thanks for posting this recipe.

      This bread was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something that could be taken with us when we didn't have time for breakfast. I substituted whole wheat flour for half of the flour and I included some nuts and seeds as well. Since I didn't have dried cranberries I used some fresh and also included some golden raisins. I really liked the raisin bites, but I will probably vary the add ins in the future. I think prunes would be good. I wanted a wholesome healthy quick bread that was also flavorful and moist. So the lack of pronouced sweetness was a plus. I now live in Europe and it is strange what you find yourself missing. I haven't eaten a lot of Boston Brown bread, but I have found myself looking at recipes to see if it would be feasible to try here. The strong molasses taste in this bread satisfied my craving.
