In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Add the sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the honey and vanilla extract.

Pros of making this recipe
There are many Pros to making this recipe. First, it is a very simple recipe that can be easily followed. Second, the resulting buns are soft and fluffy with a delicious warm flavor. Third, the recipe is versatile – you can make them as large or small as you like. Finally, they are perfect for autumn – the spices give them a great Fall flavor! Disappointments with this recipe. The only thing I would change if I made this recipe again is the dough. It was a little too soft and sticky for my tastes, but that may be because of my preference for looser breads. If you like your bread to be firmer, perhaps process the ingredients a bit longer before adding the eggs. I did not have a mixer, so I just mixed the ingredients together in my Kitchen Aid with a wooden spoon. I also added a little extra water to compensate for the wetter dough. It worked great!
This was my first time making pumpkin bread. I was looking for some recipes that were easy and delicious. This one is definitley easy and very tasty! My husband is from New England and we had a real hard time finding pumpkin spice here, so we improvised by subbing other spices instead, but it turned out still amazing. The whole house smelled nice and warm! (Except for me cuz I couldn’t stop eating it!) One tip: do not make them too big like I did. When they came out of the oven, they looked like little cakes! But they were very moist. I will be making these again for sure. Thanks so much for sharing! 0 people found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? [ Yes ] [ No Nurtured in the South
So delicious with a perfect spice level. I omitted the baking soda and used whole wheat flour and substituted salt for some of the sugar in the recipe (only because it was what was available). Worked out just fine! 0 people found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? [ Yes ] [ No Hecate
We love pumpkin bread and this is our favorite recipe to date! It’s just enough sweet with lots of spices, not too spicy at all.
Cons of making this recipe
The main con of this recipe is that the dough will be very wet and sticky, which can make it difficult to work with. Additionally, the final buns will be heavy and dense. I really love the flavor of this recipe, but I feel like the dough is too wet so I tend to find myself making smaller buns. The texture is really soft and chewy. I’m giving this recipe four stars because it’s a good recipe if you like things on the softer side. However, if you prefer your buns crispy, I recommend switching up this recipe by just baking them in an oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes or until done.
