"This recipe is delicious just as is, though I have sometimes added other items such as raisins or mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. I consider this to be my go-to recipe for pumpkin bread."

"I recall preparing this recipe when it was featured in Taste of Home. I'd used a 15-oz. can of solid pack pumpkin and I greased and floured my loaf pans: I'd used two 7-1/2"x3-1/2" greased and floured loaf pans OR 8x8x2" baking pan(s), greased and floured. This IS a great way to utilize canned pumpkin! delowenstein"

"A note to share...I double recipe, sometimes omitting pecans, and bake in three 8x4x2 inch loaf pans. Bakes in about an hour, but ovens may differ a bit so check after 45 minutes. Enjoy!!"
