Ok, my absolute biggest piece of advice is don't double the batch. Big mistake on my part, I didn't have a bowl big enough to fit it all. If you buy a big can of pumpkin, half the can then mix up another batch. I set out to make this bread because my dad loves, loves, loves pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, so I added a bag of semisweet chocolate chips to each half of the batter (for most people smarter than me this means one bag to the batch) and I added more spices. I used a whole tsp of ground cloves, tsps of cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg and a dash of ginger. I had a problem with the top still being doughy after 50 minutes of baking, and there were still parts that were not done in the top after a few more minutes. Overall not a bad recipe. I also exchanged the whole amount of oil for unsweetened applesauce, the bread was plenty moist and I used about a 1/4 c less of sugar since I added the chocolate chips. Possibly add about 1/4 c of four and next time I'll use brown sugar vs white for a richer sugary flavor. My double batch made 4 9x4 loaves that came out big. Maybe trying smaller bread pans would keep the top from being a little doughy.
