I baked this pumpkin bread recipe last night for my in-laws to have as dessert after dinner. I used half white sugar and half brown sugar, for what ever reason. It turned out good in flavor but had an odd texture, almost like a custard. It almost didn't seem baked all the way but definitely was. Any thoughts. Maybe the brown sugar added too much moisture?

I'm baking it with just 2 c sugar and no water added. HMy own high altitude & sweetness adjustments. ;)

Waaaay too sweet! It was actually sticky from all the sugar. Will not make this again, it was a waste of good chocolate, pumpkin and nuts.

Good! I used mini-chocolate chips. That worked better for my family!

This is a good tasting bread . Will make again. I did not put in the almonds. I thought the chocolate chips was enough .

absolutely delicious! not too heavy; good balance of pumpkin with the chocolate chips and almonds. I toasted my own almonds (bought them pre-sliced, spread in a single layer on baking sheet, baked in 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes stirring every few). glad I did! coworkers loved it

The only problem with the bread is that the almonds (mixed with the taste of the pumpkin) made it seem like I was eating tree bark. I would also suggest editing the recipe to only have one loaf. I don't have two loaf pans!

This was delicious, but I had a little bit of trouble with it being too crumbly and falling apart. Any suggestions?
