I have been making this bread for years, and I can’t remember where I got the recipe. I think it was on the Food Network. Anyway, the combination of tart cranberries and sweet pumpkin bread is really REALLY good! Oh, and it makes your home smell divine! No need for those scented candles the day you bake this. This time I made the recipe into 2 loaves (smaller ones) and 9 mini loaves in my new Demarle flexipan (So I could share with my neighbors). I keep fresh cranberries in my freezer–so I always have them on hand when I feel the need to bake this! This bread freezes great. Enjoy!
