    This recipe is a winner and so is At 8pm the night before Thanksgiving, my mother asked me to bring pumpkin bread to dinner. I'm in the process of moving and my cookbooks are in storage. Mom, that perennial source of recipes, was busy making the rest of the meal. I logged on to and found this FABULOUS recipe. It was fast and easy to make, looks beautiful (sorry - no coffee cans, just traditional loaf tins) and tastes great! I had NO left-overs so have made this recipe again on Sunday. Thanks Leigh Paulin for sharing!  -  27 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This Pumpkin bread recipie is great! I used regular loaf pans and also added 1 tsp. of ground cloves. I only wish it would have called for chopped nuts.  -  14 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
