Normally, I'm a pretty decent cook, but I've never been able to get pumpkin bread right. This recipe is fool-proof and so easy that my 11-year-old can make it!

made this for the same reason I am not good with breads. My family absolutely loved it. I made two loaves instead of the muffins and this turned out well. Thank you paisleyorchid for the recipe! Read More

I would not make this again. It was O.K. and it had a good texture but I have more flavorful recipes for a can of pumpkin and a spice cake mix. It freezes well. I used a caramel flavored frosting and also whipped cream to fancy it up some. I made it as a cake in a Pyrex 9 x 13. Read More

Very good and easy. I used yellow cake mix and added a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice to the recipe. I made 2 loaves and only baked for 45 minutes. Read More

I made this for my pets (with slight modifications) I only added 1/4 cup of sugar. I had almond/coconut milk on hand. I made two small loaves for the doggie's cakes the remainder went into a muffin pan. I was out of chocolate chips so I shaved so semi-sweet baking chocolate onto a few muffins which I shared with my biped friends. Everyone loved them! Especially my pups! I topped their cakes with a thin layer of whipped cream cheese. Read More

Everyone loved it. Super moist and delicious. I used a full bag of mik chocolate chips plus added a little nutmeg all spice and cinnamon. It had a wonderful flavor. I used bread pans instead of muffin tin. Read More
