    Love it!

    Melinda S from

    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

    Chris Turner from North Platte, NE

    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

    Jennifer Whitney from SEATTLE, WA

    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

    PATTI BURGESS from Caribou, ME

    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

    Marissa Vicich from Oglesby, IL

    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

    MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!

    Michelle McGrew from Garland, TX

    This is a wonderful recipe. I doubled the spice after reading the other reviews. I also added walnuts and peacans and it was really good. Next time I think I will add even more spice. This is a fast and easy recipe I will keep in my recipe box.

    YUMMY!

    Laura Watson from CHICAGO, IL

    I made this not too long ago and took it to my office where it was quickly eaten up. I actually made 2 loaves and gave the other one to our dog walker who is always the beneficiary of anything sweet I make...I added the choc. chips to both loaves. You can't go wrong this recipe!

    moist and delicious pumpkin bread

    margaret seaberg from KENMORE, WA

    This pumpkin bread was a hit. I made one batch with walnuts and one without, both were great. I will be making this again, especially during the holiday season. I did increase the amount of pumpkin pie spice and it was even better.

    good anytime of year

    Evelyn Blackford from Union City, CA

    I got tired of only having pumpkin sweets in the winter, so I made the pumpkin chocolate chip variation of this recipe for a July picnic, and it was delicious. Even my husband, who is not a fan of pumpkin baked goods, loved this bread.

  •  Star(s)

    My Favorite Quick Bread

    Melissa Knabe from Clinton, OK

    this Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread is just about the easiest I've ever made. It's delicious warm with ice cream or cold with cider or cocoa. My family loves it. I keep pumpkin all year just for this recipe.

  •  Star(s)

    Outstanding

    Terri Tompkins from WILLARD, NC

    This very forgiving recipe is absolutely delicious, and is foolproof enough for the beginning baker. You will impress and surprise when serving this treat.

  •  Star(s)

    It didn't last long!

    Rayanna Spalding from RICHMOND, IN

    Usually when I make pumpkin bread I just use the box mix kind. I read this recipe and thought I'd give it a try. It was gobbled up by the kids in less time than it took to bake it! Maybe it was so yummy because of the love baked in it from making it ourselves as opposed to the ready mix where you just add eggs, oil &water...but, the flavor was wonderful and the texture just perfect! The heavenly scent while it was baking was incredible! Next time, I will double the recipe since it was so enjoyable.

  •  Star(s)

    Always a Favorite

    Best Pumpkin Bread Ever

    MARIA WALDMILLER from BUFFALO, NY

    I have to agree with my fellow bakers, this bread was absolutely awesome. I bake alot for my co-workers and they loved it. I put about 3/4 of a cup of raisins in the recipe. It was easy to make and the bread was moist and tender.

    This is my favorite recipe. I make the version with chocolate chips b/c I add them to anything when I get the chance. It doesn't have to be fall for me to make this recipe...I make it all year round. I have even made muffins and muffin tops out of the recipe.

    JOAN CECIL from Newburgh, IN

    This indeed was a "quick" bread! Easy to assemble and with ingredients on hand. The aroma was wonderful along with the taste. I added some chopped pecans, next time the mini chips.

    This recipe is exactly what i was looking for, it doesnt include anything i would have to go buy extra, every ingredient is something i have in my cupboard on a regular basis. and the variations including banana bread which is my other favourite bread is a very good idea A++++++

    Pumpkin is so versatile. When I first saw this recipe I figured I'd give it a whirl. While not nearly as good as my Grandma's banana bread, it is quite yummy. Even my super picky 7yo likes it!!!

    Easier than you think

    Susy Willard from Davenport, FL

    This is listed as advanced, but it looked too good to scare me away. I can't find pumpkin pie spice at the grocery so the little recipe for it after the directions really helped me out. I loved it, it's like gingerbread in a loaf.

    Tastes like Pumpkin Pie

    Just as I had hoped, it tasted just like the Libby pumpkin pie. It was moist and scrumptous!! It didn't stick around here too long.

    Pumpkin spice quick bread

    Kay Anderson from Columbia, MD 21044, MD

    Hard, dry, flat tasting. Waste of ingredients and time. Need I say more? Most of the other recipes were great compared to this. Sorry.

    Slightly disappointing pumpkin bread

    Adina Petty from Concord, CA

    I made this recipe and was a little disappointed with it. Although it was moist and cake-like, it lacked the density and sweetness that I expect from a sweet bread. The recipe for Pumpkin cranberry bread is much better and is more like the dessert I was looking for. Omit cranberries if you do not like them, the recipe stands well on it's own.

    Pumkin spice bread

    Laura Lee Caron from Los Angeles, CA

    This is a great simple pumpkin bread. I was searching for something to cook on a cool fall Sunday, and this was perfect.
