These loaves make wonderful gifts! Saving not only to give but for my special family who love 'em!!
Made this bread the other day and couldn't even keep the dog out of the kitchen. Someone in the home was not happy that I gave a loaf away! It was moist and delicious. There will be another batch in the oven soon.
I had a go-to pumpkin bread recipe but this one is just as good (if not better) and all that much easier with the use of the pound cake mix. I have made this recipe for holiday gifts and received compliments. I like making the recipe a day ahead of time and wrapping cooled loaves individually in plastic wrap; after sitting overnight, the flavors really come through and the bread is very, very moist. This is a very yummy pumpkin bread, especially when served with softened or whipped cream cheese.
I plan on trying this recipe again sometime-I admit that I may just modify the recipe to suit my tastes & see how it works out!If my adaptations for these loaves DO work out, I will post another rating! Dawn E. Lowenstein
I tried the recipe today for the first time. I did use a regular cake mix, rather than a pound cake mix, but I followed the recipe as stated! I did add 1-1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon to the streusel mixture. When I baked the loaves, I noticed that they rose, but didn't have a higher top & the cresting which gives a quick bread it's cracked top was minimal! I also used 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in the pumpkin batter with 1/8 cup all-purpose flour to prevent the chips from sinking to bottom of the breads. I was hoping for a more impressive appearance of the breads. Fortunately, the loaves weren't soggy-I cut one & I admit that I ate the whole bread! I'd originally rated this recipe as excellent, but now, I feel that Good to Very Good is my latest rating! Dawn
Super easy to make and comes out suberb every time! One of my husbands favorites! Thank you!
Made many loaves this fall- a very simple recipe, moist and delicious! Everyone I shared with thought it was excellent and asked for more.
So simple and so good!
All I can say is WOW, what a fantastic recipe. Everyone loved it! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
this is my favorite both at home and for gifts. All the teachers at our elementary school wanted the recipe. Many will receive a loaf for Christmas. Thanks for a great magazine.
