SC,
I've made this recipe and it's really good. I gave both my boys one in their Christmas baskets and they loved them.

It looks amazing! In fact, I tink I'll try it this afternoon. Is this going to happen everytime I come here...that I'll find a recipe that I HAVE to cook?! LOL


OK, I am editing this post because I baked this yesterday afternoon, having read the recipe, and it IS amazing, one of the loveliest plain cakes ever in fact. In UK we get very few recipes for pumpkin and it is almost exclusively used as a savory and recipes like this are just wonderful for me. Will the second loaf freeze?

Sorry to get back to you so late lulu - the second loaf should freeze nicely. I'm glad you liked it - pumpkin bread is quite common here. Thanks for the karma too :cool:

I don't like pumpkin bread, because I always expect it to taste like pumkin pie and it never does to me. Or pumking spice lattes. I do like chai teas though, which do taste to me like pumkin pie.

I love anything pumpkin. Squash an pumpkins have been very under used in UK, but I love them. I eat it all the time. We usually use it as a potato substitute, but I REALLY love sweet pumkin recipes too....reminds me of the time I spent US as a kid. The English often just don't "get" pumpkin pie, but when you talk sweet potato and Marshmallow they almost die of horror! LOL

This was a great recipe, and I plan for it to beome a bit of a staple, because it went down so well.

Your recipe sounds great Kitchenelf. Try adding some good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips in your batter. It's a special treat.

Speaking of pumpkin, my mom makes this...very good and VERY easy, only two ingredients.

1 box of spice cake mix
1 can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)

Mix and bake according to cake directions. Batter will be very thick. Frost with cream cheese frosting.

this might be a silly ? but you do add all the other ingredients the cake
mix calls for too?

If I don't find a recipe for the pumpkin cranberry muffins soon, I think I may try to make this into muffins and add dried cranberries and a few walnuts, and use muffin pans. Of course it would make a cajillion, so I may make one loaf and the rest muffins. Maybe that would work!
