Followed the recipe to a T. Good oven, and I am not a "new" baker. Epic fail. Loaves were given the toothpick test and passed. Even baking. However, once out and on a cooling rack, all THREE mini loaves deflated in the middle. They look awful and are going in the garbage. Not pleased at all.

Hi Janet, It's hard to say if the cooking time will be affected by the addition of raisins and walnuts since we haven't tested it in our kitchens. We'd suggest baking until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Have not baked these yet. Would like to add golden raisins and walnuts. Will this alter the cooking time?

You can bake the bread in a larger loaf pan but the timing will be different. The time made be shorter since the bread will be not as thick.

Yum, what a easy and great recipe! I will definitely be making this again. If you are not a big clove fan though, you can switch them out for more cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.

What a great recipe! I made these mini loaves for a bake sale at my son's school and they sold out instantly! I mis-read the recipe, though, and used 1 can of pumpkin instead of 1 cup; it didn't seem to affect the outcome-I just had to cook them longer.

Delicious! I made this gluten free by using cup 4 cup flour and it turned out just as good. Instead of mixing all the ingredients together at once, I sifted the dry ingredients in a separate bowl (plus 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg), used an electric mixer to cream the brown sugar and butter together, added the eggs one at a time then added vanilla extract. Then I slowly poured the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and added the pumpkin. It seemed a little dry so I used a splash of milk. Perfect for those crisp fall mornings!

Yeah I found it! Another recipe missing from the Land O Lakes bread recipe book I lost! Wishes with all my heart I could replace that darn book

Best ever pumpkin bread recipe. Use a little more pumpkin to make it moist.

I have made this over and over since October and love this recipe. Definitely a supreme recipe. I even subsitute the wheat flour and use oat flour to make it gluten-free for some of my friends. I also use the whole can of pumpkin. Makes it very moist. Thank you for sharing this great recipe with us all.

Typically recipes made in the bread maker are bread recipes with yeast as an ingredient. This pumpkin bread is a quick bread and is best if made as the recipe is written.

Is there a method for making this in a breadmaker?

I have made this pumpkin bread since I first found the recipe in a digest-sized LOL cookbook I bought several years ago. It never fails to please. I add a little bit of white sugar to suit my taste and LOTS of fresh pecans. I bake several small loaves to give as Thanksgiving and Christmas gifts, which always get rave reviews. Definitely the best pumpkin bread recipe out there. :)

You could store this pumpkin bread at room temperature for a few days. Typically a quick bread, if stored for a longer time, should be stored in the refrigerator or in the freezer.

why does this pumpkin bread need to be stored in the fridge?

I have made this bread twice, the first time it was a little dry so I added the whole can of pumpkin which is a little over a cup, which made it moister. i also substituted pumpkin pie spice for the cloves and ginger and made several small loaves. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it was a little dry the first time. It is a good recipe for the first time pumpkin bread maker.
