"This yummy family tradition started when buying the kids their pumpkins. Each of the kids got one to make their jack o'lanterns. Mama got one to cook! Friends and family usually enjoy this treat. Tweak it to fit your family as I do mine! Enjoy with confectioners' sugar on top or cream cheese frosting!" — Virginia Ann

1 1/2 cups
semisweet chocolate chips
This was a hit! Moist and light, with a sweet and spicy flavor :) I left out the mace, chocolate, and confectioners' sugar, and used a 2 quart baking dish (9 x 13 inch pan).
Made half the recipe and used half splenda. Turned out perfectly as muffins. Pumpkn pie lke spice flavor and moist, not gooey.
This was very easy and very good. I followed the recipe, except that I did not have mace but instead used 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon allspice. I added the optional chocolate chips but next time I would probably leave those out, just my personal preference. By all means give this recipe a try. The measurements and cooking time were spot on. Thanks Virginia Ann for sharing your recipe.
This pumpkin bread is super delicious! I used buckwheat flour and flax meal instead of all purpose flour, and added craisins and pumkin seeds instead of choco chips and walnuts. My only advice would be to scale back on the sugar... it came out REALLY sweet.
Delicious, moist and didn't last!!! I ended up making 3 batches because it never would have made it to our Easter gathering. I thought I would try this for a change from pumpkin pie this Easter. Everyone Loved it. I wasn't sure at first about adding the semisweet chips but my daughter insisted and the little hint of chips was prefect. I left out the walnuts. I didn't have any ginger, clove or mace in the cupboard so I substituted for 2tsp of pumpkin pie spice. I am going to make it again this weekend for an other dinner gathering.
This bread turned out great but the texture was much different from my recipe with oil. A hidden benefit of the gummier texture was that my 3 year old didn't get crumbs everywhere. It was really good, just different. I would make it again.
Easy and tasty
So moist and delicious. And this coming from someone who doesn't normally like pumpkin. Had lots of people ask for the recipe.
