Guide Review - Libby's Pumpkin Bread Kit

For beginning bakers, Libby's Pumpkin Bread Kit is an excellent place to start learning how to bake pumpkin bread. The kit comes with a can of Libby's pumpkin and a bag of bread mix. All you need to add are the eggs, oil, and water. You mix the ingredient, put them in two greased loaf pans, and bake until done.

The mix is also versatile. You can bake the mix in 6 mini loaf pans, muffin tins, or a bundt cake pan. Raisins, apple, nuts, or cranberries can also be added to the mix to give the bread extra flavor.

The flavor of the bread is bland. It doesn't have the strong, pumpkin flavor of homemade breads and it tastes more like store bought bread than something fresh from the oven. However, if you are pressed for time and don't want to fuss with measuring ingredients, the pumpkin bread is still good enough for eating, especially if you add extras to the bread, such as raisins, or make a cream cheese frosting to top it off.

This is an excellent bread kit. I added chopped nuts and raisins as well as pumpkin pie spice. Could not be easier. I have baked this as a bundt cake and as 16 small loaves. Hope the kit is available again this year.
