I've used this site many times for finding recipes but this is the first time I have ever wrote a "review" Even when substituting fat-free cream cheese and light margarine this bread remained moist rich and delicious. This is a bread I will feel confident and proud to give as gifts this holiday season. Thanks Carol!!!! Read More

This bread got me great reviews at work. I served with a spread I whipped up using 3/4 c. margerine 2 Tbsp honey 1/2 tsp cinnimon and a dash of grated orange rind. It was gone in a half hour! Read More

Let me first start out by saying YUM! This is the very best pumpkin bread I have ever made. The cream cheese truly adds another depth of flavor that is very pleasing to the palate. I did not have the spices that it called for (cloves) so I replaced them with 3t of pumpkin pie spice. Great recipe! Read More

I followed all directions except I added a little extra cinnamon and overbaked it by just a couple of minutes. I find this bread to be VERY BLAND. The nuts are nearly the only taste you'll find in this loaf. I had such high hopes for this one too.. I was going to enter it into my work's bake-off.. but I don't think I'm going to now... Read More
