Loved this pumpkin bread. A very flavourful, dense (but not too) loaf. Because I'm not that keen on raisins in baking, I have discovered lately that crystallized ginger makes a nice substitute - spicier, tastier. They suited the pumpkin bread perfectly! I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cup to accommodate the sugary coating on the 1/2 cup of crystallized ginger I added. Baking time for me was exactly 70 minutes.
Made this for PAC 2010. The best pumpkin bread I've had. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Excellent recipe. I wanted to do something different. Took one loaf to work and left the other at home. Everyone loved it.
