Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

To me, this is a wonderful tme of the year; traditions - new and old - favorite recipes and (sometimes more fun) new recipes. Came across this one on the web when looking for a cranberry bread recipe.  Made a few modifications - quick, easy, and think you'll like it!

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread      Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 c canned solid pack pumpkin (1 large can was enough for 2 breads and pumpkin pudding)
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/4 c water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 c vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 c flour                                
  • 2 tsp  baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 c fresh or frozen cranberries (1 pkg of the fresh was enough for 2 loaves) - see note

Preheat oven to 350*; butter loaf pan.

Beat together pumpkin, sugar, water, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Sift in all dry ingredients; stir til batter is smooth (if you use an electric beater, this process takes very little time).  Stir in cranberries; spoon better into loaf pan, spreading evenly. Bake, middle of oven, 1 hr and 15 minutes (or til tester comes out clean).  Cool in pan, on rack 10 minutes. Take out of pan and cool completely. Can be made ahead and frozen or 4 days ahead and chilled, covered.

NOTE - if you take the cranberries and mix them with some of the flour you will be using, when you add them to the batter, they will end up not on the top or the bottom, but distributed throughout the bread.
