Cranberry Pumpkin Bread

Rose Mary Mogan


I made this bread because I had a surplus of Fresh Cranberries. I didn't add nuts to this recipe because my neighbor is allergic to nuts & I gave her a loaf.

This recipe is plain, but quite tasty. I was able to make 2 loaves (12X 41/2X 3 1/8) from this recipe. Shared one and kept one for us.

The recipe is moist and the tart cranberries adds a different level of flavor to the recipe.

Quick simple and easy, serve it plain or add a dusting of powdered sugar, or a thin glaze if desired.
