Pumpkin Cranberry Bread. Fellow bread addicts beware!

Next to God, family, and exercising, I think breads, especially sweet breads, makes me happier than anything else.  I love a moist, delicious slice of zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, almond poppyseed bread, almost any kind of bread.

I loved this pumpkin-cranberry bread so much I did not want to share it with my kids.  I wanted the whole loaf to myself.  To hide away in a very high cupboard for late at night, after everyone was asleep, while I watch my favorite shows (Law and Order, The Office, SNL).  To eat slowly, without distraction and with full enjoyment.  But I could not hide the aroma as the kids walked through the door after school.  They were as excited as I was, so I gave in and shared.

This Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Recipe had the perfect blend of sugar and spice, with a burst of cranberry at just the right moment.

Wow, that’s written so well that I HAVE to try it. I even just bought a bunch of pumpkin (canned)on sale because I had you in my head talking about the price of pumpkin.

Definitely healthier than the pumpkin bread I bought at Costco! Lol. And who can’t argue that pumpkin puree is a nutrient dense delicious way to get some Vitamin A.

I was just wondering how the cranberries turn out, are they incredibly tart? The only time I’ve used fresh cranberries was in a muffin recipe. The muffins were so tart that I thought either I had done something wrong, or the cranberries were bad. I was told later that the muffins were probably supposed to taste that way. Oh well.

Do you have any good ideas for using sweet potatoes? We just bought some cause I know they are supposed to be healthier than russets, but I’m not really sure what to do with them! Help, please! 🙂

Alex, they actually aren’t tart at all. Eating them plain, I can not! I even tried chopping them and mixing with sugar, still too tart. But I chopped them up so it wasn’t one big cranberry, and it tasted perfect in the batter. Even a little sweet.
Liz, are you talking a yam, or a sweet potato? Sweet potato I cook exactly like a regular potato. I make them all the time.

sounds and looks delicious. i love this time of year and the great pumpkin recipes out there to try. unfortunately, my family doesn’t care for pumpkin that much and I don’t want to eat the whole thing myself. . .so they don’t get made here.

Hi, Liz from MealMakeoverMoms here. Your recipe sounds delicious. I absolutely love the pure canned pumpkin puree. Super healthy and incredibly convenient. I’ve been making pumpkin chocolate chip pancakes for my boys and they love every bite. Not too many chocolate chips .. just enough to add some fun flavor.
