Excellent and very easy. I added approx. 3/4 cup of sweetened dried cranberries (chopped).

My husband and I loved this recipe! I took the advice of others in their reviews and added extra cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon) and loved the result .... I also used the called-for 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. I may try adding extra spices next time to see if I like it with more flavor. I love that this makes two loaves ..... one to eat and one to share. In fact I'm taking one today to a friend who is in the hospital. It's a great recipe!

i added 3 sm banana's because i had less than a cup of pumpkin puree left over. it was libby's pumpkin pie mix so i only added 1/2 cup of sugar. The only spice i added was a couple shakes of cinnamon & the required salt. instead of nuts i added my left over milk chocolate chips. Everything else was the same. cooked VERY quickly but i was able to keep an eye on it & catch it in time. made a crusty moist not so sweet bread. i'm glad i added the chocolate chips to make a sweeter taste for my liking. i'll make this again!

This was a good bread but it lacked pumpkin flavor. And I used fresh pumpkin spice. If you're looking for a mild tasting bread, then you will enjoy it. I personally was looking for a strong pumpkin flavor.
