"I have no idea where I found this recipe. For the past 25 years or so this has become a holiday tradition. I have made this for bake sales and have baked it in mini-loaf pans and given as Christmas gifts. If this is baked in mini-loaf pans, reduce the cooking time to about 45 minutes."

"This pumpkin bread is delicious! I made a powdered sugar glaze to drizzle over the top. It yielded two loaves plus four muffins."
"This is a moist, flavorful pumpkin bread that's easy to make. I managed to fill 3 mini-loaves from half a recipe. Baked it just under 30 minutes or so. Can easily be made into muffins. Keeps well but it'll be eaten before long!"
"Yummy yummy quick bread! I made only one loaf and used some chopped walnuts. Great tasting, moist bread. Will make again!"
"Perfect! Made this for teacher appreciation lunch and I am still receiving rave reviews. I followed exactly as the recipe stated except I added some ground ginger. I am making some again today to give as gifts at my Christmas party. This time I am putting some candied ginger in my food processor and adding it. Hopefully it will taste as good as it sounds to me."
"Loved it! A very moist pumpkin bread with really good flavor. I used half applesauce for the oil and baked in my convection oven for 1 hr 20 minutes. The crust is perfect. Thank you Paula for another keeper!"
"Oh, yummy! This is a great recipe. I substituted 1/2 C applesauce for half of the oil and threw in a handful of black walnuts. Yum!!"
"I love a good flavorful pumpkin bread, and this one is right up there with the best of them. The combination and amounts of the spices are perfect. My loaves baked for 75 minutes and were just right. Made for ZWT6: No-Nonsense Nibblers. Updated to say I gave a loaf away to a neighbor who had never had pumpkin bread before (can you imagine??!), and now she wants me to make more of this!"
"Wonderfully moist pumpkin bread recipe. I added some semi-sweet and white chocolate chips. Goes wonderfully with a cup of coffee or tea. I gave one of the loaves to my FIL and he loved this bread too. Made for ZWT4."
"A very good pumpkin bread. I made the full recipe and put it into two loaf pans. After 70 minutes, they were starting to burn, but I saved them just in time. Next time I'll check them after an hour."
"I made 1/2 this recipe. I folded in about 1 cup of chocolate chips before baking. Turned out yummy!!!"
"My whole family loved this bread. They couldn't wait to have a slice, after it cooled. It was delicous. Made 2 loaves. Thank You. Made for ZWT 4."
"I made this morning as I chose to make this for ther Eastern Europe Bread Challenge for ZWT. My house smelled wonderful while it was baking. I made 12 muffins and 4 mini loaves. The only thing I did different was to add some chopped pecans to half of the batter, just love them. I ate a muffin with some whipped cream cheese and a slice with the pecans with some butter, both were excellent. Thanks Paula for a lovely recipe!!!!"
"My husband LOVES this recipe. He is picky, too. The crust bakes up so wonderfully. It is a great tasting bread!"
"This bread tastes fantastic! It is so moist too. All of the spices blend together beautifully and I really like the allspice flavor. I made four mini-loaves and they turned out very pretty. I only had two cups of white sugar, so used brown sugar as my third cup. This worked perfectly. Thanks, PaulaG!"
"This turned out very good. I made mini loaves. They were nice and moist. I donated them to a church bake sale and they were gone right away."
"My DH and DS are real pumpkin freaks. They both were craving some pumpkin bread the minute the weather started to turn colder. I tried this recipe and now will use no other. It made three good sized loaves. I have made it twice now. I added 1 cup of English walnuts to one baking, and they were crazy about that batch too."
"This turned out just as i expected. it was also very easy to half or multiply. Great flavoring, but i would have used more cloves"
"YUM! We loved that it was not overly sweet and was full of pumpkin flavor. The spices in no way overpowered the bread. Thanks for a great keeper!"
"Thanks so much! This bread is fantastic. So moist and delicious. I got one large loaf and five mini loaves out of the recipe. My new fave!"
"Wow! Very moist, delicious, very easy to put together -- can't say enough good things about this bread. I used all of the ingredients as listed. The only variation I took was the size of the pan I used. I didn't have the pan size specified. I only had the smaller/mini loaf pans, and I used four of those. I didn't time the baking because I knew it wouldn't take nearly as long as the recipe said because of the difference in pans -- but I think they were in the oven about 35-45 minutes. I got rave reviews from everyone who tried the bread, so I'm going to add this one to my cookbook. Thanks so much for sharing this great, easy recipe!"
