I had some canned pumpkin in the freezer. I need part of it for something else and wanted to use up what was left. This was the yummy result.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This pumpkin bread isn't overly sweet and has just the right amount of the fall seasonings to make this extra yummy. I love freshly grated nutmeg - this makes the bread really special. The cranberries and walnuts are a little extra bonus. It's just enough to make one spectacular loaf of bread. You're going to love this on a cool, crisp fall morning.
