About this recipe: This loaf cake is hearty, delicious and brimming with flavour. Oats are mixed into the classic spiced pumpkin cake mix.
My family loved this bread. If you're looking for the Starbucks type pumpkin bread with more sugar and spice than pumpkin, this is NOT for you! This lower sugar bread was moist, easy and delicious. We could actually TASTE the pumpkin over the spice which was a nice change. Next time I'm using whole wheat flour and some wheat germ as well as cutting back to 1/3 c oil and 1/3 c applesauce. Will definitely make this again! - 19 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made it for my diabetic husband. I subbed applesauce for the oil. Used whole wheat pastry flour and my own blend of pumpkin pie spice. I halved the recipe & used Splenda for the white sugar, but left the brown in. We are enjoying it. - 13 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
There was a time when I would not have appreciated this bread because it is dense and not extremely sweet. We've been cutting back on sugar and trying to convert to whole grains, so this recipe was a good fit for us. We loved it, as did the church group I shared it with. I was out of whole wheat flour the last time, but I can't wait to try it next time. - 13 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
