Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Bread | November 10, 2011 | By

So, tis the season…  For pumpkin that is!  I love how the different seasons bring their own tastes, ingredients, aromas, and feels.  Right now, I could do with pretty much pumpkin anything.  The other day, I made a Dutch Pumpkin Apple Crisp (so good!), I’m currently craving a Pumpkin Spice Latte, I’m planning on making Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares this weekend, and TODAY I made Pumpkin Cranberry Bread.  As I said, pumpkin everything – literally.  If I had a pumpkin candle, you can be sure that would be lit in the kitchen too (what a good idea!).

Ingredients
  1. 1/3 cup canola oil
  2. 1/3 cup sugar
  3. 1/3 cup brown sugar
  4. 1 tsp vanilla
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 1 cup mashed pumpkin
  7. 1 ½ cups flour
  8. ½ tsp salt
  9. ½ tsp baking powder
  10. ½ tsp baking soda
  11. 1 tsp cinnamon
  12. ½ tsp each ginger, cloves, and nutmeg
  13. 1 cup dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine the eggs, pumpkin, oil, sugars, and vanilla. Mix well. Add the flour, salt, baking powder & soda, and spices. Mix until flour is moist. Stir in cranberries.
  3. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake 50-55 minutes, or until toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
Notes
  1. If you want to change it up a bit, substitute fresh cranberries for the dried. OR, you can omit the cranberries, and add raisins, chocolate chips, or pecans.
  2. If you want a slightly healthier version, use 1/4 cup apple sauce and 1/4 cup oil, instead of just oil, and cut back on the sugar by using only 1/2 cup total. You can also use a low-cal sweetener, but use less of it than you would sugar.
