All of my quickbread recipes that I have made in the past always stuck to the pan and came out all wrong using all the right instructions. I have made this pumpkin bread recipe twice now and it has come out perfectly every time. Instead of Baking Powder I use one teaspoon of potato starch and one teaspoon baking soda as a replacement. It still makes a wonderful moist loaf for me to enjoy.

This recipe was VERY tasty, but definitely does not have enough leavening. Mine came out more like a baked pudding than a bread. Next time, I recommend using baking powder, and increasing the amount to 1 tsp.

This recipe turned out nicely. I doubled it and did one loaf and one pan of mini muffins for my kids. It made 24 mini muffins baked for 12-15mins. They came out perfect! Thanks for sharing. Will use again.

Moist and delicious! I used 1/3 cup of butter instead of shortening. This has a great pumpkin flavor. I added raisins, next time I'll add the nuts as well. This is a very versitile recipe and takes no time at all.

Great bread! I should have made 2 loaves because this loaf was gone by the end of the day. I didn't have any shortening so used 1/3C softened butter. I used 1/2tsp each cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, & ginger. Out of milk too, I used 1/4C Half & Half. Simply delicious!
