Wow! This Pumpkin Bread is amazing! My husband and I couldn’t stop raving about it! The only revision I made to the recipe was I used the whole can of pumpkin purée like a few other reviewers did, as not to waste the pumpkin instead of making two loaves. I also omitted using the 1/2 cup of water like the others did. I appreciate their advice, because this was magnificent and no other changes are needed. I used 1/2 cup of raisins in it which tasted perfect! This Pumpkin Bread is a keeper! Thank you, Joyce, for posting this great recipe!
Best recipe and like that it makes one loaf. I followed it to a T and included the walnuts and golden raisins. The hubs said it was the best pumpkin bread I have ever made.
Doubled this recipe to make 2 loaves. I cooked for 65 minutes, took out of oven and began to cool it. Realized that it was not done and put back into the oven. Baked for another 25 minutes and took out. Still did not seem done. Followed the recipe to a T. Do not know what happened. Maybe too much oil. Any suggestions. Will not make again.
absolutely the best pumpkin loaf i have ever made! these are the few small changes i made. used almost the entire can of pumpkin, 1/4 butter & 1/4 coconut oil, 1/4 cup OJ, 1tbls water, & combined several sugars, (coconut, cane & packed brn), but only 1 1/4 cups. used lots of raisins & chopped walnuts. OMG! so moist so delicious thanks to the person in NOva Scovia. next time i will double the recipe making 1 loaf & a tray of cupcakes. thank again!
I tripled this recipe to give as gifts for the holidays! It is so moist and flavorful! It has the perfect blend of spices! It's a keeper!
Very good. I made 2 loaves to use the whole can of pumpkin. I subbed applesauce for the oil.
I am not a big baker, this bread was so simple. I made this for my husband's birthday, and he absolutely loved it. Moist and flavorful, he could not stop raving about it. I will definitely be making this again and again.
Can I use fresh steamed and mashed pumpkin?
Have made this recipe for a number of years and have reduced some ingredients each time to find out what I can get away with. I've reduced the sugar and the oil by half and also the eggs to only two (sometimes only 1) .I also use up any any amount of pumpkin that I have no matter if it's only 1 cup or 2 or even a full can. Makes no difference as it always turns out delicious.
Made this for the first time this evening. I did take one reviewer’s advice and used the whole can of pumpkin and omitted the water. I also didn’t use cloves because I don’t like the flavor of them. Baked for 75 min in a glass pan and it came out perfectly. It is wonderful with a pat of butter while still warm. Will definitely make this again!
