Reader Recipe: Pumpkin Bread

Another one of my latest Fall dessert obsessions I found while browsing the Kitchen Goddess group on TeamSugar. By looking at the photo, I can practically taste the moist texture of the cake! But my favorite part? The recipe source is wren's ex-boyfriend's brother. Who said exes aren't good for anything?

To make this bread, which would be delicious for breakfast, dessert, or as a gift for a friend,

I had the same problem as Shelly. I made this yesterday and it tastes awful. It's very salty. Are the spice, salt and baking soda measurements supposed to be teaspoons rather than tablespoons? I was really looking forward to taking this bread to my family for Christmas but I think I'm going to have to throw it out.

I made this yesterday and I am wondering if the measurements are wrong because it came out very dark and salty. I really wanted it to work but I had to throw out what I had because it was very salty.

ack, i forgot to mention, i made this bread several weeks ago and it was the best pumpkin bread recipe ever. i substituted apple sauce for 1/2 the oil and the bread were deliciously moist and dense :) i made one loaf with chocolate chips and the other with pomograntes. :drool: i am actually going to make them again in a couple hours to give away as Christmas gifts, omitting chips and poms. . . maybe. i'm back here because i lost the orginal print and have to print it again ^_^ thanks again for a great recipe.

Wren- why must you sprinkle the baking soda? I tried this recipe last night and mine tastes kind of off. Not really sweet at all and kind of has a salty/bitey taste. Normal or not? Great recipe though- brought it into work with some soft cream cheese and it's being devoured.

:) I use only white sugar for this bread. I'm not sure about subbing the oil for apple sauce. I've never tried it on this recipe. :ponder:

i've never been a fan of anything pumpkin but last year one of our neighbors brought some bread over and i really really enjoyed it. i was surprised by the flavor and i think that i'm going to try to figure out how to make it myself this year since it's so appropriate for the season.

Looks delicious! I can almost smell the pumpkin now. . . though i am standing at my desk at work. definetly going to try this. Can I substitute the vegetable oil with apple sauce? and what kind of sugar is used? Light Brown or white?

I have been making this for years but with this minor addition: 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon ground allspice 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves The extra spices just seem to really make it pop and I couldn't think of making it without it! PERFECT for the holidays, and even BETTER made as muffins:) AND for some reason, it gets better once stored and munched on the next day with warm muffins & cold butter... I think if you make muffins you begin checking them for doneness around 45 minutes and go from there.
