"Great pumpkin bread. I used orange juice instead of buttermilk and baked in two 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in mini loaves. It turned out very moist, soft and delicious. Next time, I'll double the recipe."

"Excellent. This recipe fills my pan that makes 8 mini loaves of bread. This is the perfect size for those bag lunches or breakfast on the run."
