I was so curious about this bread so I decided to just make half the recipe.I added some raisins and used applesauce for half the oil.It did turn out very moist.My husband and my mom really liked it.. she thought it tasted a little like pumpkin bread.I thought it was just ok but it was fun to try it.

I liked this! I was skeptical making it but liked the idea of having another way to eat cantaloupe. I tried it toasted with butter and it was good. The walnuts and spices add a lot. I will make this again.

This was delightful! I halved the recipe and used applesauce in place of the oil. I guess that just sneaks in a little more fruit anyway. My two year old gobbled this stuff right up! Thank you for such an interesting way to use up some cantaloupe.

Tastes yummy - DH couldn't figure out the secret ingredient. I love it when I stump the family on ingredients! Mine wasn't super-moist and I baked it for 50 minutes, so I recommend checking even earlier.

I skipped the nuts and the bread turned out a bit too moist. I'm wondering if it would've been better to get some of the moisture out of the cantaloupe (mine was pretty ripe) before adding it in. Still, even though they are a bit too moist (and by that I mean didn't keep their "loaf" form), they are so yummy!

Very moist with just enough cantaloupe flavor. We aren't huge fans of cantaloupe but this was good for us. Thanks:)

This was a wonderful addition to the recipe box. I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce and 1 cup sugar and 1 cp Splenda to make it a little healthier. USE THE NUTS... it breaks the recipe if you don't. It makes great muffins for lunchboxes. Thanks a ton for a keeper!!

After 2 attempts at making this (but do to my inability to read, failing...XD) I finally made this correctly on the third time. It was quite good. Very moist and mildly flavored. My husband said it reminded him of carrot cake. I only needed about half a cantaloupe for 2 cups of puree, though, so I'll probably end up making another batch with the other half I have left and try freezing them. I made it without the nuts, so I'll try it with the nuts next time. Thanks for the unique recipe!^_^

Absolutely delicious! I omited the walnuts just because I didnt have any on hand. This is a great idea for the surplus canteloupe puree I have on hand. My garden produced way to much. I'm happy now that I have a use for it. This will be nice in mini loaves for my christmas baskets this year. Thank you for sharing your wondeful recipe with us.

This is such a unique idea for me, I had to make it. Very moist. My friends just ate it up! Some said it was like a carrot cake, others said it reminded them of pumpkin bread. Either way, it was delicious. I just loved seeing their faces when I said "cantaloupe". Thank you for sharing this recipe with us!
