this is one of the best pumkin bread I have made, and I have made many. Moist and delicious.

Wondering if it's possible to use less sugar.??

Hello! Yes it is possible to use less sugar. Just cut the sugar by half and use 3/4 cup. Hope this was helpful. :)

This sounds so good. I have been craving some pumpkin bread so will make soon, but will sub cranberries for the raisins and pecans for the walnuts.

This is so easy to make and is so moist and yummy! We love it.

Some of you are commenting on it being a whole can of pumpkin, but the recipe says 1 cup. I'm sure there is more than a cup of pumpkin in the can. Not sure how much pumpkin to use for the recipe, but it sounds like a good one.

Hey there - this recipe calls for one cup of canned pumpkin. If you're using a 14 oz can there will only be a little left, so you can go ahead and throw that in too if you'd like.

It seems like alot of sugar??

it is one can of pure pumpkin,do you get it now.I made this today and it is so good

It says ONE cup Miss Sarcastic!!!

Unless Steve is a girl, I think it's Mr. Sarcastic. )

Everybody here posting is discussing the technical processing of pumpkin...I guess that is ok but what I want to know is HOW DOES IT TASTE? would like to know opinions of that question before I go through the hassle of processing a pumpkin.

I so disagree with the poster below who said fresh pumpkins aren't worth it. Get a sugar pumpkin, was it., take the stem off and cut it and bake it at 450 for about 30 mins after taking the seeds out. scoop out the pulp, puree it and you have your canned pumpkin. Alterntely you could clean as above except stap it once and score the outside, bake it whole same temp until being punctured with a fork it is soft. wait until it is cool, peel off the skin and scoop out the seeds... puree and once again you have pumpkin...tastes better than canned!!!

Can someone help? friends gave me a large pumpkin and want to know how to substitute for can one for this recipe?

Large pumpkins aren't suitable for cooking. They have too much sinew inside. What you want is a small pumpkin, say, less than a foot across. Cut a hole in the top and spoon out the pumpkin meat inside. If you want to use it in this recipe, you'll have to steam it till it's soft and then it through a food processor, till it's like canned pumpkin. It's really not worth the trouble. Canned pumpkin is ideal to cook with and I'm not aware of any impurities in it -- plain old canned pumpkin is just pure pumpkin.

I have been looking for this recipe for a long time thank you

Maybe they changed the recipe after you posted. It reads 1 cup of canned pumpkin

This recipe asks for 1 can of pumpkin without choosing a size. Is the recipe calling for a large or small can of pumpkin?

Appears the recipe calls for 1 cup of canned pumpkin, not 1 can of pumpkin. Let's hope I read it right ...
