Love it!

This is the best recipe! I get so many compliments on my pumpkin and banana bread using this recipe. It is simple, and the ingredients are usually things I already have around the house. Try it!

Under Bake It

I see some comments about being dry, add a little more pumpkin, under bake it a touch all helps. And for something a little differant sprinkle brown sugar on top of the mixture in the loaf pan and shake on cinnamon, adds a nice top crust. Great recipe.

dry and not enough spice flavor

I am usually the last person to leave a bad comment, but this needs more spice and maybe milk or something to moisten it! Does not taste like any bread I've ever made!

Great Recipe

I used this recipe but made it into oversized muffins. I sprinkled the tops with a little brown sugar before baking them. This is a great recipe. I will use it again.

Very Good

I think that next time I might add chocolate chips or some kind of nuts. Maybe some more spice next time. This time I made it according to the recipe and it made a very subtle pumpkin flavor that I liked
