I use corn oil instead of butter and added a little apple pie filling and sour cream to make it super moist. Family likes pecans, so these replaced walnuts. It was gone in one hour...need to make more!!!

I was looking for an easy pumpkin bread recipe and liked this one because it called for less sugar..Wow, it turned out fantastic. It was moist and just sweet enough. My husband and I enjoyed it with coffee after walking in the rain... What a perfect treat! Thank so much, will make it again.

I make a banana bread that everyone asks for that has "buttermilk" in the recipe. I will use this recipe for pumpkin bread that I know will be guaranteed moist. Add 1/4 of buttermilk to every bread recipe, and people will ask you for the recipe every time, I guarantee it.

I think it needs some oil and some water to make it more moist, that is what I usually do...but the spices sounds different and it would give it a twist...I'll try it with the new spices added to my original recipe..
