These were delicious. Very moist and flavorful. I ran out of oil and added extra water and you could not tell that I used less oil. It was a good way to cut calories!

I baked this bread without knowing what it would be. It came out great. Everyone loved it. I will bake it again with more carrots and raisins.

I have been making this recipe for several years now. I usually add fresh cranberries to give the bread a tart zing. I remembered to freeze a couple of bags of cranberries from last season, but I had to look the recipe up as I lost it somewhere. This is a terrific bread that makes great muffins or mini loaves too. I cannot wait!!!!

I made muffins with this recipe, and my son, who is a very picky eater, just loved them!

This bread was fabulous! I made mini loaves with it and gave it to my kids teachers. All gave great reviews. I loved how moist this was. Other pumpkin bread I have made were not this moist and tasty.

This bread is so easy to make and is very moist. I made 2 loaves with the original recipe then tried 2 loaves and I reduced the sugar to 2 cups of brown sugar and changed the raisins to currants. This is going to be a favorite gift giving bread. Thank you Very Best Baking.

I made a double batch of this bread for Easter. My 4 year old loves it. She keeps asking for more which is rare for her to like anything. Everyone who has had it loves it. It is very moist. My sister wants the recipe
