This bread is great! I added chopped dates to make it special and also put 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. Everyone who has tried it loves it! Note- make sure you add baking powder or it will not rise- I added 2 teaspoons for each batch and some extra cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice too. Read More

The bread was very tasty and easy to make. The directions however needed a little revamping--I added 2 tsp baking soda- the reciped never mentioned how much to add..and I also mixed the egg mixture in a separate bowl and then added the dry ingredients to it. The recipe will make 3 medium loaves. Read More

It was great! My husband and kids couldn't wait for it to cool down before finishing a whole loaf. Our UPS man came by 3 times to ask for more! Read More

This is the "best ever" pumpkin bread. The texture is excellent and the men at the mill where my husband works can't get enough of it. I have sent many copies of the recipe to work with him. And honey if a man wants the recipe... it's good cookin. I can't always find coconut pudding but have substituted other flavors the cheesecake instant pudding is great! I too have to bake it longer about 80 minutes or so. Read More
