STOP! Before you add a whole cup of super fattening oil....use a cup or more of unsweetened applesauce. I rate this 5 stars! I did the applesauce substitution and also used whole wheat pastry flour. I also cut the sugar down to 2 cups (I used cane juice) and dang if these healthier adjustments didn't make it moist and fabulously better for you! I can never justify adding over a 1/4 c. oil to anything baked. The kids loved it. The dogs loved it. And most importantly I loved it!

I made this just as the recipe directed and my review is based on doing just that, with no changes. I found this to be moist (but really, how often do you come across a dry pumpkin bread, especially with a cup of oil?), pretty, and with the compact but tender crumb you'd expect. It also had a deep, pumpkin color. Choosing this recipe was merely for the reason that it called for less spice than I'm used to, and no nuts or raisins. I wanted to try something different. Unfortunately, pretty loaf as it is, a loaf that admittedly turns out perfectly, it is only mildly pumpkin flavored, and only mildly spiced. In a word, it's basically kind of blah. Moist, beautiful, but blah. Amp up the spices, or add raisins, craisins, nuts or SOMETHING, and this could easily be improved to at least 4-star quality.

The bread turned out great. I ended up having to bake it at a lower temp for a little longer because it was getting burned on the outside and still raw on the inside. A tip for those who don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can make your own that works just great for this recipe. 3 tsp of pumpkin pie spice = 1.5 tsp cinnamon, 3/8 tsp allspice (or cloves), 3/4 tsp ground ginger, and 3/8 tsp nutmeg.

This recipe is delicious! I used 5.75" X 3.25" pans (for gifts). The recipe made 6 gift loaves and they were a HUGE hit! For the smaller pans, I baked them for 20 minutes, then covered them with foil and baked another 20-25 mintues. YUM!

This was pretty good pumpkin bread though I think it needs more spices. I combined the recommendations of others and used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour. I also used 2 cups white sugar and 1 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil. It made two loaves(8.5X4.5 pans) plus 6 muffins.

I felt it needed a little more pumpkin flavor, but the texture was wonderful and stayed moist.
