Can you make pumpkin bread with pumpkin pie filling mix? Would that work? Would you still follow a pumpkin bread recipe to make it but just leave out the spices and sugar?

Thanks.

It would be extremely moist, not to mention, most "pumpkin" mix (AKA canned) is not pumpkin at all, but rather squash.

I've made pumpkin bread with my leftover pumpkin pie filling (shallow pie pans that year). I just reduced the spices and sugar, and it worked out fine.

I've done it several times....just watch the sugar and spices as Emeraldmaiden said.

(And I don't know where MJ7 gets their pumpkin filling....but the type I used is most certainly pumpkin. Yes some brands do use mild squashes for texture....but that doesn't make them bad either. Not everyone has the time or desire to bake a pumpkin for puree from scratch.)

Libby's pumpkin pie (canned) is the number one seller in the US of pumpkin products, and guess what, they don't sell pumpkin, instead they use squash.

Amazon.com: Libbys 100% Pure Pumpkin, 29 Oz: Prime Pantry

There is a photo of the ingredient list for Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix.
It is not listed as squash because it is "Pumpkin".
