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.
Oh My Goodness! This is gorgeous. I was looking around this site for recipes to use up last night's pumpkin and I had all the ingredients for this so I gave it a go. I am SO glad I did. Not too sweet, a bit like a malt loaf but lighter. Very, very nice! I will definitely be marking the recipe and making this again.
I found the molasses too strong in this one.
Another great recipe bursting with flavor. Will definetly make again. I also used 3 small loaf pans (disposable kind) and 6 mini muffin (so i could taste). I'll package these up for my next hike. Excellent for breakfast
This recipe was a pleasant surprise. The molasses gives the bread its savory flavor and the pumpkin its soft texture. I only put in 1/2 the sugar called for and used fresh cranberries and a bit of nutmeg. This bread was ultimately an excellent choice- great with tea and butter- just what I was looking for. This one is a keeper. I'll be trying this one again- maybe with butternut squash next time.
