The first year that I taught school, one of my second grade students brought me a loaf of homemade Cranberry-Pumpkin Bread. I thought it was so fabulous that I begged her to ask her mother for the recipe. I think that I have made this every fall in the 23 years since Kelley's mom so generously shared her recipe with me.
2 eggs 2 c sugar ½ c vegetable oil 1 c pumpkin 2¼ c flour 1 T pumpkin pie spice 1 t baking soda ½ t salt 1 c chopped fresh cranberries
Combine eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin and mix well. Sift together flour, spice, soda and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in pumpkin mixture. Stir just until ingredients are moistened. Stir in cranberries. Pour into greased and floured loaf pans (2 large or 4 small). Bake at 350° for an hour (large pans) or 40-45 minutes (small pans). Turn out onto wire rack and allow to cool.

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
