Omitting an ingredient in pumpkin bread...will it make a difference?

I want to make a pumpkin bread recipe. It calls for cloves which i don't have. Can i just omit it will it affect the taste much do you think?

Also how do you make bread so it's not doughy in the middle. I've tried banana bread before and it always is nice and hard on the outside like bread should be but heavy and doughy in the middle even after the time allotted goes by. what am i doing wrong?


here's the recipe i found too:

  • Leaving out cloves won't make that much difference. You might add cinnamin in it's place.

    I know what you mean about quick breads and being doughy in the middle. If you get 3 small loaf pans the bread cooks quicker and gets done all the way through. If you don't think you will eat all 3 you can freeze one.

  • That won't make much of a difference.
