I have baked this recipe both ways and fell equally! This has by far been the best pumpkin bread I have baked.
*Note: The best way to keep your bread moist is to turn off the oven when you are a couple minutes from being fully done and letting the pumpkin bread cook slowly for about 5-10 minutes in the turned off oven! Make sure to cover snugly once the pan is cool enough to grab or else it will dry out! Thank you so much for the recipe!"

"With 78 of the 87 respondents giving this recipe a 5 Star rating I took the plunge and made a double batch without ever trying the recipe out. What good is half a can of pumpkin puree, right? Unless you make a smoothie and I've already had my breakfast. I've got just over an hour before my first tasting........Yes! This definitely is 5 Star Pumpkin bread and I think it's way better than StarBuck's version!

FYI I omitted raisins and walnuts. The next time I make it, which will be later today, I will add some topping, just like StarBucks. I'm going to bring some to share for the holiday this week and freeze a couple to have on hand. I will add some walnuts to one of the next two loaves I make. I used two different bread pans: one dark metal and one glass. The metal one took longer to bake in the center. I set the timer for 60 minutes as I always go under with my oven and the one in glass pan was not ready. I gave it an extra 10 minutes, which was only 5 minutes more than the recommended baking time."

"This is such a moist bread, you can't just have one slice! I added 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the batter and my co-workers devoured the whole loaf yesterday. I've made 3 loaves of this bread this week. Definitely a "keeper!""

"Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe!! I had never made a pumpkin bread before and this was absolutely wonderful!! It is very moist and delicious. I put in the walnuts & raisins and cut back the sugar to 3/4 cup and it was still sweet enough. Even my husband ( who doesn't usually like ANYTHING pumpkin) really liked this!"

"This bread was so delicious and moist! I think I used chopped pecans in my first batch and we didn't really like them. Next time I may try another nut or just leave them off entirely. I also added some nutmeg and cloves to bring out some of the flavor, and next time I may add more pumpkin spice, nutmet and cloves next time to see if it helps bring out the flavor. Other than that, this was a GREAT recipe that I will be making again in the fall!"
