I LOVE pumpkin! I seriously start my fall by buying like 16 cans of pumpkin just for recipes. We make my Pumpkin pancakes at least twice a month, often every week, once it gets cool. It’s such a great flavor and fits so well into the fall comfort foods. Personally I know it sounds weird but my warm pumpkin drink is a FAVORITE of mine, like hot chocolate, but pumpkin. Mmmm Great, now I need to go make a batch…
ANYWAY pumpkin bread is another favorite. Easy to make, and oh so good! You can make three loafs with this and give 2 away (maybe “boo” your neighbors?) OR eat them all… That’s what I do 😉 I love it fresh, or toasted with some cream cheese. And if you want it really sweet with some maple frosting, Seriously so good.

Looks heavenly. I’ve never made a quick bread with mayo in it, so I’m gonna have to give it a try!
I swap out mayo for oil in quite a few recipes! let me know what you think!
Looks great…hope to make this soon, but I do have a question….
The recipe calls for cloves , and my Daughter doesn’t like cloves….what would you suggest?
If I omit the cloves, should I add anything else or more of one of the other spices….she doesn’t really like cinnamon either but she will eat it….but will not eat anything that taste like it has cloves in it !!
Also, I noticed you use Mayo, can you tell me why you use it instead of oil ?
If I don’t want to use Mayo, can I use oil instead and what do you suggest, a veg. oil or other?
you can just leave out the cloves, no biggie. mayo is made from oil and eggs, and it gives the cake a more moist outcome than eggs and oil alone. That’s why I use it. you can add 2 more eggs and oil instead if you want, but I’m not sure the amt, start with 1/3 C – I use olive oil in baking cause I think other oils taste rancid but to each his own, whatever oil you like to use in baking.
