“This is a lower calorie quick bread that does not skimp on flavor. Buttermilk guarantees a moist crumb, too. Great for afternoon snack.”

This was a great lower-calorie bread - I was very impressed. I did add about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, which made for a nice addition. I had no complaints about the lack of pumpkin taste - let's face it, pumpkin by itself just doesn't have that strong of a taste. If that's really what you're aiming for, make a pumpkin pie instead.

This is fantastic pumpkin bread. I'm bringing the recipe to my next weight watchers meeting! I followed other reviewers' advice and doubled the pumpkin, adjusting the cooking time accordingly. I also used freshly baked pumpkin instead of canned. (Slice wedges and bake for at least an hour or until soft. Puree with a hand mixer) This freezes well in individual portions and reheats well. Wrap one piece in a paper towel and pop it in the microwave for half a minute. Yummy!

Yummy! I tried this recipe to use up some extra fresh pumpkin puree, and it turned out great! I added sliced almonds to the first batch and chopped pecans to the second. Also, I used 1/2 tsp. cloves and 1/2 tsp. ginger in the first batch to replace the nutmeg (still used cinnamon), and 1-1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice in the second batch to replace the cinnamon and nutmeg. I also added 1 tsp. vanilla to the second batch. Both batches were great! Pumpkin doesn't have much flavor, so it's all in the spices!
