Reviews for Coconut Pumpkin Loaves
"Loved this recipe but made the following changes: Replaced 1/2 cup of oil with 1/2 cup Apple Butter; added 1/2 cup Craisins. I do this with almost every pumpkin bread recipe I make and it always turns out moist and spicey."
"I was in the pumpkin mood today with the cool weather we are having. This bread is delicous! Very moist and perfect for the season. Love it."
