    This bread is sooo good! I didn't add walnuts and was glad. Instead of in loaf pans I made it in brownie pans and cut into squares..and made cupcakes for the kids with cream cheese frosting. It was a huge hit with adults and kids alike! A+  -  23 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It turned out fine - I will probably make it again and add walnuts next time.  -  10 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this is not my first time making this bread and it has always been a huge hit, very nice flavor, I have made it with 2 cups pumpkin puree and canned pumpkin, no difference, both very yummy. The only thing I noticed is I had to bake it about 10 minutes longer than recommended. Thanks for this recipe, will make over and over again.  -  09 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
