Oh, so Wonderful!
I was given a warm, fragrant loaf of Cranberry Pumpkin Bread last year at Thanksgiving and promptly fell in love with it. I also as promptly made 6 loaves for Christmas to a) give to our good neighbour and kitty-sitter , b) to bring to my in-laws in , and c) to have some for ourselves. It received rave reviews from everyone!
I'm about to make 8 loaves for this Christmas...the extra loaves are for the freezer when I'm pining for a slice in March or August. Perhaps I should make an even dozen...
Easy to make, very tasty, but definitely start testing it at 50 minutes or so, doesn't need 90 minutes.
Not just Cranberry & Pumpkin
I made Cranberry & Banana Bread OMG It came out so good.
I like it.
I made some changes...substituted white whole wheat flour, and then used 3 eggs instead of 2. Added 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 cup sour cream, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. I tented it with foil after 30 minutes, and it only took 55 minutes to bake. Also reduced the sugar down to 1/2 cup, and that seemed plenty.
The loaf is very pretty, moist and flavorful, and wholesome, too.
This was the best quickbread I've made!
Accidentally bought a pumpkin for carving that was meant to be used for its meat and then my significant other bought too many cranberries and look what happened: the best quickbread ever and right off the back of the bag. Threw away the bag and found the recipe again here. I'd advise to use the whole cranberry, though. The tartness of the cranberries is perfect with the sweetness of the pumpkin bread.
