I made this last weekend and it is all gone. It was very easy to make and the flavors were great. Also it was not very sweet which is just how I like my quick breads. I am going to make this bread again.

Made this to use up some ripe bananas, I took a loaf to where my son works and they ate the whole loaf in one day.

Best kind of pumpkin bread!

I first made this a year ago and gave a few loaves to some friends, who to this day are still begging me to make them some more! This bread is moist, delicious, and makes the entire home smell so good! It's now a favorite in the family.

Every fall everyone gets together and decorates their houses in the neighborhood for the season. This was a great treat for everyone while they worked. Very easy!

Great Snack Bread

by D. Diana , Huntersville, NC on Sep. 2008

This bread was easy to make. I added an extra can of pumpkin, 1 cup of miniature chocolate chips and 2 extra bananas. I made the bread into mini muffins, mini loaves, and regular size muffins. My husband and son really enjoyed them. Especially my son who is picky about sweet breads. It makes a great snack bread. I will make this bread again.

Not so sweet

I guess I'm very spoiled. This recipe didn't have much flavor. It had a wonderful aroma while it was baking. It was easy. But not much flavor. Sorry....
