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.

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. The Test Kitchen
