Reviews for Moist Pumpkin Bread
"Quite good...I use my tried and true Fannie Farmer pumpkin bread recipe but am always trying others. Next time I would add a bit more oil and spices, due to personal preference. Good, solid recipe and great ALSO for beginning bakers...lovely when a recipe is easy and delivers!!"
"For years I've been searching for a pumpkin bread that mirrors a pumpkin I tried at a church social. The bread was so moist and flavorful, but I have yet to find anything that comes close. In my search this is probably the best pumpkin bread recipe I have found. I did add a full cup of oil and 1 1/2 cans of pumpkin. My search for the church pumpkin bread continues but I will make this again. The texture and flavor is very good and my family thought this was the best pumpkin bread they've tasted!"
"Very good. Will make it again."
"Very easy and really moist. I'm making my second batch tonight!"
"This is one of my Fall/holiday go-to recipes. I usually double the batch, because I'm too cheap to buy the little cans of pumpkin and then make several mini loaves to give as gifts."
"I love this bread! It is so easy to make and so soft!! I will definitely make this again and again!"
