I followed the instructions exactly EXCEPT:
1) I made my own pumpkin paste (peeled, cleaned inside, cut pumpkin into around 1/2" x 1/2" x 1" pieces and water boiled for about 12+ mins)
2) I made my own buttermilk (1/2 cup room-temp Braum's 2% milk + 1/2 tblspn fresh lemon juice and let set for about 10 mins)
3) I added walnut pieces (1 cup of ~1/4" size) - it did NOT alter the final paste consistency compared to yours on the video.
- The bread was NOT uniformly-baked throughout (there were some wet spots, amazingly on top and in the middle).
- The bread crumbled quite easily when slicing a piece (was not a big deal to me but was for my wife).
- For the amount of sugar used for this recipe (2 cups !!!!!) will not make it again as there are 100s of sweet recipes one can follow requiring way less sugar and achieve great taste/results.
- Last, the video presentation is splendid, .... just SUPERB! Well-organized, well-spoken, good pace, .... no guessing or any chance for misunderstandings. A+++

I had trouble with recipe. Looked great but fell apart when slicing it. Not sure what I did wrong. I do agree that the spices need to be pumped up

The loaf itself came out perfect. Good texture. No soggy bottom which was obviously something the chef was focusing on. However, I expected it to be more spicy and more pumpkin-y. I barely knew it was pumpkin bread. It was good bread but not necessarily good pumpkin bread. It was okay pumpkin bread. I am going to try it again and up the spices next time.

Great recipe for pumpkin bread. I have made this several times, and it always comes out perfect. I do, however, lessen the sugar in the recipe, as it is our family's preference for less sugar.

Great recipe for quick and easy Pumpkin bread. I reduced the amount of both sugars to 3/4th of a cup and added 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips and it turned out great. There was enough sugar to make the bread sweet and not overly sweet.
