"There were very good. I decided for time reasons I would make muffins instead of a traditional loaf pan. I got 12 slightly oversized muffins and 6 mini muffins. I also reduced the oven temp to 325,..." See more as well as cooking time. Larger muffins 35 minutes, smaller muffins 25 minutes. I left out the dates (didn't have them). I used organic crazins (dried cranberries) for the add-in. I only used a handful of chopped nuts (daughter not fond of them). The orange flavor is a great addition to this muffin. I will definately make these again!"
"So yummy and easy to make! Although I did make a few changes: I used 1/2 cup butter instead of margarine. Instead of 1 1/2 cup white sugar, I used 1 c white sugar + 1/2 c brown sugar. I omitted th..." See moree orange zest because I didn't have any and am glad I did because I wanted the pumpkin flavor really to shine. For the cinnamon and cloves I just added an equal amount of Chinese 5 spice powder. And for the walnuts and dates, I added an equal amount of raisins and fresh cranberries. Mmm, this bread was so delicious! I don't know if it has anything to do with elevation and where this recipe orginated, but my bread took any extra 12 minutes to bake. I live outside Athens, GA which isn't below sea level or at a high elevation. GREAT BREAD!"
"Excellent pumpkin bread! I did change it a tad bit. This fall I started using fresh sugar pumpkins for my recipes and found it better than canned. So, I used freshly baked pumpkin instead of canned..." See more, used Splenda for the sugar, and increased the orange zest to 3 Tablespoons. The orange accent is a perfect match for pumpkin recipes. I will be preparing many mini-loaves of this bread for the freezer to enjoy through the winter months. Thanks for the recipe Carol."
