This recipe is a winner and so is Allrecipes.com. At 8pm the night before Thanksgiving, my mother asked me to bring pumpkin bread to dinner. I'm in the process of moving and my cookbooks are in storage. Mom, that perennial source of recipes, was busy making the rest of the meal. I logged on to Allrecipes.com and found this FABULOUS recipe. It was fast and easy to make, looks beautiful (sorry - no coffee cans, just traditional loaf tins) and tastes great! I had NO left-overs so have made this recipe again on Sunday. Thanks Leigh Paulin for sharing!

I would have used applesauce or butter instead of Oil. The bread looked wonderful, but all I tasted was oil!

This Pumpkin bread recipie is great! I used regular loaf pans and also added 1 tsp. of ground cloves. I only wish it would have called for chopped nuts.

Overall a great recipe. I felt something was missing, so I added one teaspoon of cloves and it turned out great. I also chose not to use coffee cans and used a regular loaf pan instead. My friends and co-workers loved it and have offered to pay me to bake it for them for the holidays.

We had a morning graduation in our family and I had everyone for brunch following the graduation. Made the pumpkin bread in the coffee cans and it looked so festive sliced with different cream cheeses on the side--was a hit with everyone.

I have made this twice already and really enjoy it. It has a great flavor. Next time I might try adding some chopped nuts.

We love this recipe. I have now made 15 loaves for family and friends for Christmas. It was a huge success at Thanksgiving as well.
