This was fantastic pumpkin "bread", these should actually be referred to as "cakes." Used fresh baked pumpkin, ground up the cloves and cinnamon sticks because it's all I had in hand. Used standard cane sugar and some maple syrup, and subbed all baking powder for the baking soda. Still turned out fantastic. One thing I love about this recipe is that it uses 1/2c water instead if just going for the 1 entire cup of canola oil, as less healthier recipes do. Would also try adding 1 or 2 teaspoons of vanilla next time. Forget canned pumpkin and used fresh if you can, it makes a world of difference!

I've made this twice so far. It will be my go-to pumpkin bread recipe. It's a very adaptable recipe and I'll probably make it a little different each time. I'll never use 1.5C of sugar, that's for sure. Today I used 3/4th cup and it's perfectly sweet.

I love this recipe. I made as written many times, but the last time, I added the entire can of pumpkin, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice. I added chopped walnuts and put the mix into 2 smaller disposable loaf pans for sharing. It was fantastic! Great either way, but if you're looking to use up your pumpkin without doubling the recipe, it will work. I think it's more moist and has more pumpkin flavor. Great recipe. I tell everyone to use it! Thanks:)

I'm disappointed. I made 2 loaves today and neither of them was cooked through to the bottom even though I left them in for longer than 70 minutes. And, it's not my oven.

This bread is quick and has that perfect sweet and spice I look for in the cooler months. I used one cup fresh pumpkin instead of canned, dropped the oil down to 1/4 cup, and used 1/4 cup of milk instead of the water. Super moist and fluffy!

I enjoyed this bread a lot. It came together quickly with regard to mixing, and it baked up beautifully. I love that it is made with oil - no creaming any butter so that makes it easier to mix up. I have sometimes added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the recipe with excellent results.
