"Cut out the ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Instead, use a can of pumpkin pie filling and add a touch of extra cinnamon. Also, used half cup of oil. Was fabulous with a pat of melted butter fresh out of the oven!!!"

"I made 1 loaf and used the rest of the batter to make muffins. The muffins were done in 20 minutes. They were so good! Very moist and tasty."
