I got this recipe from It's pretty healthy and tastes good too. I use about 2.5 cups of brown sugar, even though the recipe calls for 3 cups. Enjoy!

This was delicious! I did make a few changes, so I thought I'd share. I used 1 cup of unsweetened applesauce instead of the oil, cut the sugar to 2 cups using 1 cup organic cane and 1 cup brown, and added 1 cup of raisins instead of the nuts. I also omitted the cloves simply because I didn't have any. The bread came out plenty sweet for us, and was moist and delicious. The baking time was definitely too long. I took my loaves out after 1 hour and 5 min, and they were a tad crispy around the edges. It was still delicious, but next time I will shorten the cooking time a bit. It is hard to find good whole wheat recipes %u2013 this is definitely a keeper!

I chose this recipe because it used only whole wheat flour, but I cut the sugar from three cups to two and also halved the oil, adding 1/2 cup of plain yogurt instead. The canned pumpkin one can find here contains only 1 3/4 cups so I used a couple of small cooked yams to make the two cups of pulp. I also put in two tsps. of cognac just for fun. The resulting bread was delicious: light, moist, flavorful and certainly sweet enough for a bread. We ate it with chevre à tartiner. Excellent!

This is great! I made it into muffins and cut the baking time down to 25 minutes. It made 27 muffins.
