This is a flavorful, moist bread and it makes the whole house smell wonderful! It is so moist that if you are wrapping it to give as a gift, as I am, do not wrap it until the last minute. I think next time I will add a little more flour to the dough. What a great Holiday bread to make and share. Thanks, Carole in Orlando
I made this tonight and it was really a wonderful recipe, I have never made a loaf cake using cranberry sauce and pumpkin puree, what a wonderful combination of flavors, and extremely moist! I chopped up 2 cups of frozen cranberries on my processor that I had in the freezer, and added them to the batter...I made mine in three mini loaf pans. I have stuck this great recipe away in my favorites cookbook to make again. Thank you Denise for a great recipe!...Kitten:)
