I have to say, this recipe is the best and easiest I've tried by far. My husband tried this recipe for a function at work and it was a hit. Once you try it, you'll see why... you've gotta try this... thumbs up to the owner of this recipe.. thanks so much for sharing it with us. (This will be on our thanksgiving table tomorrow.)

I am making my fourth batch of this recipe, and it is easy with good results. I found a nice switch for it, that makes it "fluffier." I ran out of sugar on the second round. I used one cup of granulated sugar and two cups of confectioner's sugar, and it really lightened the bread up. Either way, it's an easy, great recipe.

I have been making this recipe in 3 states for friends, family and grandchildren. It is a hit everywhere. Easy to make; in TX, it needs 1.25 hours to bake in a gas oven. Warmed by the slice, it makes a great breakfast for late teens.

This is a question, actually. I just tried this recipe and it doesn't seem cooked in the middle -just around the very edges seem cooked and when you cut it - the whole inside is much darker - is it supposed to be that thick and dense? I did use extra pumpkin so I will just use the 1 cup next time, but I am wondering if it will really make a difference? Is this a thick, heavy bread?

What's in season?
