I made this again, this time WITH apples, and I didn't like it as much when it was just plain pumpkin. I cut the apple into chunks about half an inch long, and they kind of sank to the bottom of the loaf and helped make it dense and even rubbery. I probably overmixed, too! It is tasty, but the texture isn't very desirable this time. I used applesauce. Next time I will skip the apple chunks and add another teaspoon of baking soda, I think. I want it to be more fluffy next time.


I made this to take to a veggie potluck.  I used a 15 oz can of pumpkin puree. I used applesauce instead of oil.  I used 2 cups sugar instead of 2.5.  I used 1 serving of egg replacer (the 1 cup has to be a typo), and I added pecans.  I made it in a loaf, and I also made it in muffins.  The muffins turned out kind of dry and stuck to the muffin papers, but the loaf came out moist and delicious, so I do not recommend making muffins out of it.  I don't think it would have been too sweet with the full amount of sugar, so, I will use 2.5 cups next time.  I thought the pecan pieces were a nice addition.  For flour, I used 2 cups all-purpose and 1 cup whole wheat. This is a nice fall snack-bread or breakfast bread.  This was easy to make, and, I will make this again!  Another review mentioned Thanksgiving, and, that's a good idea...


This turned out to be a great recipe!  I used fresh pumpkin, halved the sugar, and it was still semi-sweet.  I wanted to make a healthy bread w/o too much sugar and this was perfect.  I also used 1/2 ww flour and 1/2 ww pastry flour.  


I made a dozen muffins and an 8x8 pan with this and I'm eating my second muffin as I type this-- these were delicious! I used applesauce and less sugar, all wholewheat pastry flour, and 2T flax with 6T water. I coarsely chopped the apple so when you bite into a piece it's a really nice effect. Perfect for Thanksgiving morning  :)>>>


This was really good. The cloves were a little overpowering, but the bread had mellowed out and was much better on the second day. I used 1/2 c. applesauce and 1/4 c. oil and baked 75 minutes. I think walnuts would be a nice addition in the recipe.


I used 2 T flax seed with 6 T water for the egg replacement.  I also halved the recipe, but used more cloves (I love the taste) and raisins instead of apples.  It turned out good.  I did have to bake it about 75 mitutes, though.  It was extremely moist.  My husband ate about 4 big slices of it right off the bat. Me too!  Yum.


this was very good! I left out the apple (didn't have any) and made plain pumpkin muffins instead. baked them for 15-20 minutes and got 15 large muffins. I used pumpkin pie spice in place of the list of spices, cut back the sugar to less than 2 cups, and went with the applesauce option. I did have to add some soymilk (1/4-1/2 cup) because the batter looked dry, so maybe you could add the flour gradually and see how it looks. they turned out delicious! the topping was a popular touch. they might also be good with oatmeal mixed in, or nuts/dried fruit/chocolate chips.

I am pretty sure "1 cup of egg substitute" is a typo that means "substitute for 1 egg." I used Ener-G and adding a cup would have been gross.

p.s. if your can of pumpkin is 15 oz, not 16 oz, don't sweat it. 15 is fine.
