I love this bread. I make it into muffins and they hold wonderfully. They freeze well too. sometimes I add white chocolate or cherry chips to the batter to shake things up. Thank you for the recipe.
We loved this! It was very yummy...especially with mini chocolate chips substituted for the nuts! This made 4 mini loaves and a small regular loaf for me. Thanks for the recipe!
Excellent bread, light, soft and fluffy, very flavorful. I used butter for the oil but otherwise made as written and I was very happy with the results. I will be making this often, thanks for sharing!
Fantastic, Bev! I was looking through the cupboards for ingredients for something sweet to make, and found a few cans of pumpkin. Not wanting to make a pie, I thought I'd find a recipe for bread..and came upon yours! My family absolutely loved the bread--even my "non-sweet" eaters! I also made a simple cream cheese icing for the top, which was a lovely addition! Thanks for the yummy recipe!
This is such an awesome loaf, the aroma while cooking was heavenly. The only change i made was 2 cups of fresh pumpkin puree
Smelled amazing baking and tastes even better.
So much flavor! Everyone loved it :)
This is very, very good, but definitely too sweet. I'll cut the sugar back to 2+ cups next time.
I have been making this bread annually for Thanksgiving (I make it early in November and freeze one loaf). After reading the reviews I found myself thinking "is it to sweet"?? "Are there too many cloves?" Well, today I made this and my annual cranberry-pecan bread. One of my pumpkin loaves fell apart as I was taking it out of the pan (never had that happen before but it had stuck to the bottom). Needless to say that was the loaf that I ate now, and the other one frozen. But, wow, I took one bite after it crumbled and it was one of the best breads I have ever had. Have been nibbling on it ever since and just love it. I think the recipe is perfect 'as is' - not too sweet, and not too many cloves. Awesome.
All I can say to Bev is thanks for sharing this recipe.
It was a favorite last fall and i think I gained 3 lbs-- Don't worry as I will not hold you accountable for the weight gain.
I have converted this recipe to gluten free and you would never guess it is--it is fantastic!
I do only add 2 cups of sugar though and comes out great
