Pumpkin pie loaf

    1 hour 15 min

    This tea loaf tastes just like pumpkin pie. It's moist, sweet and lightly spiced. For best flavour, let the loaf sit at room temperature for at least 24 hours before serving.

    Totally agree with first review. Halloween pumpkin perfect to use. Easy to make and tastes really delish. Even skeptical, pumpkin-pie-hating husband enjoyed. Yum!  -  08 Nov 2011

    STOP! Before you add a whole cup of super fattening oil....use a cup or more of unsweetened applesauce. I rate this 5 stars! I did the applesauce substitution and also used whole wheat pastry flour. I also cut the sugar down to 2 cups (I used cane juice) and dang if these healthier adjustments didn't make it moist and fabulously better for you! I can never justify adding over a 1/4 c. oil to anything baked. The kids loved it. The dogs loved it. And most importantly I loved it!  -  18 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
