Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Bread

ANNE Hasselbrack


Recipe makes two (2) loaves!!! This is a very dense bread but it has the BEST flavor - best of both worlds - pumpkin and cranberry, and the grated orange peel adds so much flavor! Attributable to Julie Lincoln, published in Penzeys Spices Holiday 2013 magazine.
