Reviews for Pumpkin Zucchini Bread
"Excellent! I exchanged half cup unsweetened applesauce for half the butter. Otherwise followed the recipe."
"With all the butter how can it not be 5 stars? I made the recipe with brown sugar rather than white (only because I was out) and cinnamon only for the spices. My husband loved how strong the vanilla flavor was, the bread was a prefect, it only lasted 2 days in our house!"
"I have learned to drain and squeeze dry the zucchini for these type of recipes. This bread was wonderful and not so heavy and dense as most zucchini bread recipes after I squeezed it dry. Very, very tasty. I don't like cloves though so I halved the amount."
"Absolutely amazing!!, .....so moist, and yummy, my family adored this and couldn't wait for me to make it again. My brother is in from New York and wants me to make this , then he gets to go back with a whole loaf for himself!! ...... we all love it, ...thank you all soooo much."
"This bread recipe has the perfect fall harvest taste. It's very moist and delectable. It's the perfect addition to any holiday meal."
"This recipe is excellent! Followed the recipe as written. Very moist."
"Wonderful recipe! I followed it as written (minus the nuts) the first time with great results. Even my picky child ate it up - he didn't even realize I was sneaking vegetables into him. The next time I made it with applesauce replacing some of the butter and sugar substitute replacing some of the sugar , and it was just as delicious. The texture was a little bit different (not quite as crumb-y) with the substitutes, which was fine with us. I wouldn't sub ALL of the fat and sugar, though because I think the results would lack the great taste/texture combo of the original recipe."
"I made this recipe and switched it to gluten free. I did that by substituting a gluten free flour that included zanthan gum, and I also added 3/4 tsp. more of xanthan gum. Because I used my own homemade pumpkin puree it seems alittle extra moist. But the flavor is great and for being gluten free it turned out nice!"
"This was a great recipe. Made several batches to freeze. Everyone loves it!"
