Reviews for Delicious Pumpkin Bread
"I have a question: I've read all the reviews and noticed that some say cook-and -serve pudding (as does the actual recipe) and others say instant pudding. Could someone clarify which pudding is best? Thank you!"
"What a wonderful pumpkin bread recipe. I've made it twice now and didn't change a thing except the second time I made it, I used one package of butterscotch cook and serve pudding and one package of vanilla cook and serve pudding. Both versions are absolutely delicious and so moist! I do, however, get only two loaves from this recipe, but they are full-size loaves, not mini-sized. As mentioned, it does freeze very well."
"Very good, and very easy to make! My family liked this bread a lot. I also added three teaspoons of cinnamon, as suggested by another reviewer."
"I've made this recipe twice now, and the only adjustment I've made is to add three teaspoons of ground cinnamon instead of one teaspoon. I love how quickly it comes together."
"Absolutely delicious, gave as treats to friends and had nothing but rave reviews. Delicious thanks for recipe"
"Easy and tastes excellent."
"I have made this many times because it is the best.I got it from one of my many Taste of Home books."
"I have made this amazing loaf several times, even gave them as gifts. This bread is more cake than bread...I substituted butterscotch pudding for the vanilla and it was amazing. I served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side."
"So good! I doubled the cinnamon, but might try pumpkin pie spice next time."
"Absolutely delicious! I make 2 batches every autumn for my family and coworkers. Once in a while I'll add a half of mashed banana for a extra pop of flavor."
