Yum! I was making pumpkin puree today, wondering how in the world I would use it all (I made about 15 pounds!), when I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. I was already making a batch of cornbread for my father, so I whipped this one up along with it. It's a very hearty bread b/c of the whole wheat (and I used stone-ground cornmeal as well), but moist and sweet. I'm thinking about making this to serve with Thanksgiving dinner. The only thing I changed in the recipe was I substituted buttermilk for the milk since that's all I had, but it turned out great, nonetheless!
who knew pumpkin in a cornbread was so good! i was making cornbread and was inspired by this recipe to throw in some left over pumpkin and the spices into it.. sooo tasty! i want to put pumpkin and spice in all my cornbread recipes now!
it is exactly what it says: pumpkin cornbread. It is very good and definitely good for you, but it did not 'wow' me like I thought it would. Still, this recipe is a keeper. thanks.
