I have now made this more times than I can count! I am always horrified by the amount of eggs and oil in these breads, so I made some easy substitutions to make it even healthier, but SHHHH, I don't tell anyone when I give it to them! I substitute 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of regular flour and put one of those little containers of applesauce (approx. 1/3 cup) in the 1 cup measuring cup before filling it the rest of the way up with olive oil. NO, you can't taste the difference. I also replace the cinnamon/nutmeg mixture with 1 teaspoon EACH of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon, and I used LIGHT coconut milk too. Toasting the nuts and adding coconut flakes is unnecessary. ;)

I did not like how the coconut milk tasted with pumpkin, I prefer the Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread recipe - it's just a moist.

Yes, this is as super moist as it says and more. It's even moister the second day if you wrap it well in saran. The flaked coconut is completely uneccesary, and I didn't toast the walnuts and it turned out perfectly. I also added 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves for an extra kick and using Light Coconut Milk gives the same great results. I've made this 3 times in less than two weeks and my husband can't get enough. Great for giving since it stays moist for so long! **2nd UPDATE** - I've substituted unsweetened applesauce for ALL of the oil and and coconut milk (which has a lot of cholestrol and fat!) and it turned out phonomenal! The applesauce kept the bread SUPER moist and you can't taste it at all. Due to the wetness, it did take an extra 5 min. in the oven. Will never use oil/coconut milk in this again.

yummmmmmmm! This is a great treat for kids, my 8 month-old and my 2 year-old both love it. I make muffins and bake them @ 350 for about 22 minutes (give or take a minute) I also changed the recipe to accomidate using 1 15oz can of pumpkin. I use 3 1/4 cups flour and I add a tablespoon of applesauce. I have tried using less oil, and it dosen't come out right - stick to the 1 cup. I also adjusted the sugar to 1 1/2 cups brown and 1/2 cup white. I've tried using even less but they then taste a bit too bitter for us.

This bread is wonderful. Everyone raves about how wonderful it tastes. I leave out the coconut because I'm not a fan, but the coconut milk really makes a difference in the moistness of the bread.

Wow. In the ultimate quest for replicating the Starbuck's Pumpkin Scone, I discovered this recipe. It's moist, tasty and irresistably pumpkin. I followed the recipe exactly (I usually modify recipes to suit tastes) and was _very_ impressed. Try it out as 12 muffins. :)

This was the best bread! I did not have flaked coconut on hand so I omitted it. Instead of walnuts I added almonds (not toasted) cut in half and fold it it into the batter. They tasted wonderful! Also, I made pumpkin fudge which never set so I just melted that down and used it as a glaze on top of the bread. This bread is moist and flavourful! A hit with my husband and 16 month old. It only took 45 minutes to cook, if I had left it in the whole cooking time it would have burned. Yummy!!

I made this for the first time last night, and we ate the first loaf in less than a day. Wowsers! My apartment still smells fragrant. I skipped the shredded coconut and the walnuts, and am perfectly happy with the result. Thanks for the recipe!
