Nicely spiced with cloves, cinnamon and pumpkin, this bread is a family favorite. Everyone who tastes a slice asks for the recipe. You can substitute raisins or chocolate chips for the walnuts. —Jean-Marie Hirsch of East Rochester, New York

"I've been making this every fall for several years. I substitute mini chocolate chips for the walnuts. You can make two loaves with 1 can of pumpkin. It makes a great gift for friends. My homeschool group loved it."

"Excellent! I substituted the walnuts for pine nuts and it's delicious! I would never be able to tell that it is from whole wheat flour just by tasting it."
