Chef's Notes

You can substitute 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar instead of the 1/2 cup white sugar if desired.


  1. Followed the recipe with no changes. Very tasty. Not overly sweet. Will make again.
  2. Actually, this was perfect as written. No adjustments necessary. My husband and i loved it.
  3. Less fat and less sugar doesn't always taste good, but I am happy to find a healthy recipe that actually IS delicious. I used my own pureed pumpkin, and upon the suggestion of another, added an extra 1/2 of sugar to make up for unseasoned puree. But I might even try 1/4 cup instead, and - Read more ...
  4. Good low fat version. Very moist. I didn’t add chocolate chips and I added slightly more spice as a reviewer suggested and I sprinkled walnuts on top. Very flavourful. My mum loved it. She said it was as good as anything you would buy at a cafe.
  5. I just made this and it's excellent! Moist ad holds up just like a bread filled with oils and sugar. Definitely something worth trying. Could maybe use more spices so feel free to toss a bit more than called for.

  8. Very yummy and moist bread- trust me, you won't miss the oil in this bread! I had some pumpkin pie spice that I had mixed up on hand and used 1 1/2 tsp of that and it was perfectly spiced. My kids loved it, great after school treat, thanks for the recipe!
  9. I made this recipe because I love a sweet pumpkin taste around this time of the year. I followed the ingredients exactly and the result was AMAZING. thank you for sharing the recipe!! my whole family can't get enough
