Excellent pumpkin bread! I've baked this recipe 3 times in the last week, each time trying to get it fine tuned for my tastes. Each recipe made 24 large muffins (22 mins) + 2 mini-loaves (25-28 mins).
First time...I followed the recipe except using half cup oil + half cup melted butter + 1 cup chopped pecans..."Delicious!" everyone said, but I thought it was too sweet, needed a bit of molasses, and wasn't spicy enough.
Second time...doubled all the spices, 0.5 cup oil + 0.5 cup melted butter, 2 cups dark brown sugar (no white sugar), 1 cup chopped pecans...very good but the cloves overpowered and had a bit too much molasses flavour (from the dark brown sugar).
Third time...0.5 cup oil + 0.5 cup melted butter, 1.5 cups dark brown sugar + 1 cup white sugar, 1.5 tsp cinnamon, 1.5 tsp nutmeg, 0.5 tsp cloves, 0.5 tsp ginger, 1 cup chopped pecans...PERFECT!!! This is the magic bullet recipe I will be using forever!
Laurie, Thanks for sharing your fantastic recipe...sorry that I amended it a bit.
