Reviews for Easy Pumpkin Bread
"Very, very good. I cut the nutmeg to 1 tsp and added a slight amount of ginger. I also cut the sugar down to 2 cups and added chopped pecans. This bread is delicious. I will definitely make this again."
"Use this all the time, the kids love it."
"This is the BEST pumpkin bread I have ever made! Moist, sweet, yummy! I'm definitely going to make this many more times!"
"I've made this several times now and it's an awesome recipe. I used it through the holiday season for friends, family and church. Thanks for submitting this recipe :)"
"Easy to make and tastes yummy, but I would decrease the sugar content next time. The bread is a little too sweet for me, but I would definitely bake this again."
