    I doubled the quantities, then discovered the instructions should have said a 2lb loaf tin (should have added up the weights first!)  -  21 Jul 2016


    This is a moist, well balanced quick bread with a nice punch of cinnamon. The batter will be thick, so be careful not to overwork it in the bowl. I was able to yield two 8"x3.75" loaves with this recipe, perfect for snacking and gifting. Definitely a keeper.  -  06 Dec 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a good base recipe but I thought I needed to be a little less sweet, a little more pumpkin-y and have a little more spice. I made this as muffins rather than bread. Decrease the sugar to 1/2 + 1/3 c (I actually used 1/2 c Truvia + 1/3 c sugar, and it turned out beautifully). I decreased the chocolate chips to 2/3 c. I used 1 c + 3 tbsp of pumpkin puree, which added moisture as well as pumpkin flavor. I added 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and the juice of a 1" piece of fresh ginger root.  -  06 Nov 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
