Moist Pumpkin Spice Bread

"This may be the most delicious pumpkin bread recipe I've ever baked. I came up with this for my brother's 18th birthday and it has been devoured in just two days. I believe the applesauce in the recipe is what makes it so ooey-gooey moist. It's also low in fat as the applesauce replaces the oil that would normally be used. The recipe makes two loaves, one of which can be frozen or given to a friend."

    Will never make this recipe again. Textures really weird. Too much liquid. Dense like a wet sponge. Tastes like applesauce with too much nutmeg and cloves.

    I was going to make this, but went to the reviews to see what others thought, if they had modified, or anything like that. Then, I noticed that all the positive reviews were made within a freakishly close time to one another (not to mention the writing style of each is exactly the same.) Soooooo... I checked out the questionable reviewers. Turns out, each of them just so happened to have reviewed the same four recipes within the same few weeks of each other. Things that make ya go "hm?" So, not going to make it, not going to recommend it and in fact, plan to post this little bit of info on facebook, twitter, pinterest, etc. Shameful, really. I mean, fake news has screwed up this country, it shouldn't be tolerated in the baking world, for cryin out loud!

    Just made a loaf and a cake out of this recipe and both came out fantastic! I added walnuts and used honey instead of sugar and water. Believe it or not I got plenty of lift using whole emmer and spelt flour! (Sometimes things turn out flatter if you use old baking powder/soda, just a thought.) By the way, the cake-pan version is great with cream cheese frosting. ??
