This is a great recipe for fall. I love the taste of the pumpkin and spice and the contrast of the tart cranberries. However, the crystalized ginger is what did it for me. I had it on hand for another recipe I use it for and decided to throw it in. This is my new go-to pumpkin bread.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

- 3 tablespoons yogurt (vanilla or plain)
