This recipe was a pleasant surprise! Great texture and the right mixture of spices. I have tried it with whole wheat, quinoa, and even oat flour! Great with all three! It is worth trying.

This bread was a big hit at my house last time I made it. It's really good with pecans in stead of hazelnuts.

Is it possible to make the Maple pumpkin spice bread in the breadmaker? It'll save having to bake it in the oven.

I would not call 13 grams of fat a low fat recipe, although it looks like it would be good.

This looks fantastic - and I've got a huge pumpkin on my allotment that's been asking for it for weeks! Thank you!

or you could just make it with eggs. Would it kill ya?

My apologies for the VT newsletter (Dec. 21 2010) that mistakenly labeled this as egg-free as well as dairy-free. In the rush-rush-rush of the holidays, I didn't do my homework and double-check the ingredients list--it's been over a year since I last made/tasted the recipe and my mind got scrambled. To make the recipe egg-free, substitute the equivalent of 2 eggs of egg replacer, or you could also use 1/4 cup flaxseed meal mixed with 1/3 cup water and add 1/4 tsp. more baking powder. A final option would be to substitute 1/2 cup pureed soft tofu and add an extra 1/4 tsp. baking powder.

This was advertised as "egg and dairy free". The recipe calls for eggs?

Jenni - 2010-12-22 11:04:22

The link from your newsletter totes this as a vegan recipe free of eggs and dairy. However, the recipe calls for 2 eggs. Though substitutions can be made quite easily, I just wanted to point out the error.

The email said this recipe was egg and dairy free, but there are 2 eggs listed in the ingredients :(

Jill - 2010-12-22 01:31:41

Oh dear. The link from the e-mail said that this was a "luscious egg-free loaf" :( Otherwise, it sounded super yummy. . .

The email I received says this is egg-free. The recipe contains 2 eggs!
