"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!"

"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."
