A moist treat

This recipe turned out quite good but...just a small but...I would definitely mix in some more nuts(instead of just putting nuts on the top).

Did I screw up?

This didn't work for me. It tasted fine, however it was gummy & didn't have the texture of a bread. I don't mind a bread being moist, but this was too moist. After reading other reviews, I probably goofed somewhere. My husband won't eat it...I hate wasting food; so guess it's all mine.

Nicely Old Fashioned

Sometimes pumpkin bread just has too much sweetness to it, but this one was just right. The spices in this recipe mingle well and it made hit at the office for Christmas gifts! I did mini loaves. Everyone said it reminded them of Grandma.

Moist and flavorful!

This was actually my very first time making bread! I'm not sure if all breads are supposed to be this moist and delicious, I'm thinking probably not :-) Even though I used the blender a little bit too much (which resulted in a dense bread) this was still VERY VERY good and I will be making this again and again! I did add some nutmeg and cloves based on other reviews. I also used chopped pecans, and I may use a different nut or a smaller cut next time.

Great Low Fat Pumpkin Bread

by D. Deb , CT on Nov. 2009

Multiplied by 6 and made 6 loaves(hard to manage, would do no more than 4 next time). By mistake, I FORGOT to add the oil!!...Bread was still very moist. Will make again, add a little more spice and I will leave the oil out. Doesn't need it.

Simple and Yummy too>>>>

This bread was very good but I would suggest adding some extra spice. The second time I made it I added some extra cinnamon and nutmeg it was delicious!!
