This was great. I used pecans instead of walnuts. I used one cup of pumpkin puree. I added 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut--a great addition that my family liked. One Tbsp. of pumpkin pie spice is equivalent to: 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon 3/4 tsp. ginger 3/8 tsp. cloves and 3/8 tsp. nutmeg. Thank you Linda!! Read More

This pumpkin bread was good but not the best. I've made tastier loaves. I think I prefer fresh cranberries over the dried ones used in this recipe. Read More

I've been making this same recipe for years. I always use fresh cranberries (which I keep in the freezer and add directly to the batter) and substitute applesauce for half-to-all of the oil. It still comes out moist, just a little less heavy. I love this bread!!! Read More

I had to bake this bread two different times -- my first loaf had a thick doughy texture (probably because I only baked it for 60 minutes). My second time I still used one 9x5 in. pan and baked it for 1 hr. and a half and it came out perfect. I also added 2 tsps. of vanilla extract and an extra egg. For the 2 c. sugar I used 1 c. white and 1 light brown. The taste is excellent! If you use only one 9x5 pan you might have to cover the top with foil to prevent overbrowning. Read More

I just loved this bread! I did use fresh cranberries which I rough-chopped in the food processor and I did add a little more spice (cinnamon allspice nutmeg and cloves.) Also I added 1/4 cup applesauce. The recipe yielded 2 (8x4) loaves and 2 mini loaves. I just delivered my 2 larger loaves to the neighbors for a Thanksgiving treat! My husband and I treated ourselves to a mini-loaf first...and it was wonderful! Read More

LOVE this bread. I used freesh pumpkin from our fall pumpkins. SOOOO good. The one thing I would say is you would want to sift the dry ingrediants or be sure to mix it up really well so there are no lumps of flour. I found that with the first batch the lumps of flour never blended into the bread while it cooked and I ended up with a few dry lumps of flour in the baked bread. I like to bake extra and slice it up to freeze individual pieces to be taken out when ever I just want a nibble to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Read More

This bread was very good; moist and not too sweet. I used fresh, rather than dried cranberries because that's what I had. Next time I'll use more cranberries. I'll bet using 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar would make this recipe even better. Read More

This was a really good base recipe. When I first used it I was pretty inexperienced in pumpkin bread but have since made dozens of loaves and learned a lot! First I much MUCH prefer to use fresh pumpkin puree than canned. You just cannot get the same fresh flavor from a can and really it's not that much more work. I highly recommend using fresh/frozen cranberries which have been roughly chopped for a really nice tart bite of flavor in every mouthful. For most loaves I either reduce or omit the oil and add instead either apple sauce sour cream plain yogurt or a combo of two of those things. We like spicy bread so we add quite a bit more pumpkin pie spice and a bit more cinnamon as well. I replace half the white sugar with brown. If you change ONLY one thing use fresh/frozen cranberries! So yummy! Read More
