I didn't use any add ins because I was making it for other people with chilren and I didn't know if they would like nuts, raisins, etc. This bread was so bland and plain, I couldn't believe it! I put some melted butter on it and it was edible. I would not recommend this recipe.

I too bought the pie mix in error - and am so glad that I did. The recipe makes the most crazy-delicious pumpkin bread. It turned out moist and was gone in less than 30 minutes. I added in a handful of raisins. What a hit.

Good, Easy Bread. A Few Conversions Make it More H

by B. BILL , W. Covina, CA on Nov. 2009

This is a good, easy bread. We made some changes to make it more healthy. Use whole wheat flour, Organic turbinado brown sugar, Sea Salt, grape seed oil and olive oil spray on the pans. We also added about 1/3 cup of flax seed and did not use any Sprinkle Ons or frosting. It came out moist and everyone liked it alot, even the kids! I will make it again.

Easy recipe, wonderful taste. I accidently purchased the pumpkin pie mix,instead of the pure pumpkin. Lucky I found this recipe. Added dried cranbarry and chopped nuts. Turned out very tasty and moist pumpkin bread. My whole family loves it.

This was another great recipe...easy to do and easy to disappear! I added in walnuts and craisins and lessened the sugar. The family loved it! Next time I will make it in the muffin form so we don't have to wait too long to eat it!

Good, could be improved

I didn't use the stir ins or top it but I got good reviews. I made it into the muffins, and got 12 mini muffins along with 30 regular. I think I'll do a glaze on these next time. My only issue is it never tells you when to add the baking powder.

I tried this recipe out last night, and it definitely makes plenty to go around! I got 1 dozen muffins and a 9 inch loaf of bread. Easy to make, and good flavor - very pumpkin!! Great for the fall season.
