Pumpkin-Cranberry Gift Loaves
1 29-ounce can pure pumpkin (about 1-3/4 cups)
1-1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs or 3/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
2-1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
2 cups fresh cranberries
Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray 6 baby loaf pans (about 6 inches long) with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, use a whisk to combine pumpkin, sugar, eggs, and vegetable oil. Add
dry ingredients, stirring until everything is combined. Stir in nuts and cranberries.
Bake at 325°F for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
This is a very moist quick bread. Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove to rack and
let cool completely before wrapping.
