I also stirred in 1/2 cup chopped pecans. This made a moist and tender quick bread and I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing Sharon. Made for Cookathon for Sharon in memory of DH.
I threw in half a banana, 3/4 tsp. caramel extract, and 3/4 cup of pecans and it was delicious. Very moist.
Great pumpkin bread. Baked up beautiful and high in the 60 minutes. Dense and very moist without being heavy. I did use pumpkin pie spice instead of just the cinnamon and nutmeg, and I added 1/2 cup of plumped raisins. I think I'll be trying the banana version very soon :) And probably other fruits too. I think this is now my basic quick bread recipe. Thanks Sharon!
Like the other reviewers, this was moist and flavorful without being heavy. It rose high for me, and I used pureed fresh pumpkin and 1/2 whole wheat flour The color was great. It stayed fresh for days too. This will become my go to quick bread recipe--I can't wait to experiment with apples and applesauce to cut some of the fat. Thanks for sharing this!
I'd give this recipe 10 stars if I could!! So incredibly delicious. It'll definitely be my go-to sweet bread/muffin recipe from now on. It's so light and fluffy and perfect. I can't wait to try to make a chocolate variation, or maybe a orange cranberry batch. Thanks a million for posting!
Just okay. Easy recipe. Very moist bread but pumpkin flavor is somewhat bland.
Ok, I didn't make the recipe exactly as written. I followed "Deantini"'s suggestions for lowering the fat. The taste was out of this world - the addition of the sour cream really added a smoothness. However, Deantini, my bread did not rise. I made it with your exact changes. Any thoughts? I'm going to keep trying, because the flavor is really delicious. (However, for medical reasons, I need to lower the fat.) Anyone....any thoughts?
Excellent pumpkin bread. It comes out very moist and has a delightful pumpkin flavor. I will definitely be making this again!
Very good. I used splenda instead of sugar and made muffins instead of bread.
This really is outstanding! Even my non-pumpkin bread eating daughter loved it and she is now converted. I made one loaf following the recipe using plain yoghurt and it was awesome. Then I made another loaf where I played with the ingredients; 1/4 cup butter, 1 egg, 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree and and extra 1/4 cup flour and no nutmeg/cinnamon 1/2 cup chocolate chips. This was really good too, but next time I will reduce the sugar as it is too sweet with original amount and chocolate chips. I will definitely make the original loaf again and keep playing with the other one. Made for your Cook A'Thon
