Just pulled this out of the oven about an hour ago, it's amazing! I ran out of pumpkin puree' at 1 1/2 cups, so I substituted with 1/2 cup of cinnamon applesauce. Pretty darn good, and very moist!

This bread was easy to make and turned out great. I added 1/2 cup of pecans and omitted the cloves. I also had to turn the oven off and leave the house for the last 15mins of baking, when I got home I tested the bread and it was done...perfect!

Very yummy! It wasn't sticky moist but I changed a few things so that is probably why. I used butter instead of shortening. I added 1 tsp of nutmeg. I added 2/3 cup chocolate chips instead of the nuts. I also baked it in a bundt pan instead of two loaf pans. I don't know exactly how long it took to bake b/c I forgot to start the timer but I know it was over an hour. Very good nonetheless.
