    FABULOUS! DELICIOUS! Truly a terrific bread. The scents in my house smelled like I was baking gingerbread. The bread baked perfectly in 50 minutes (2 loaves). The tartness of the cranberries hits you in small bites while you savor the cinnamony and pumpkin flavors in the background. I made this before Thanksgiving Day and we had it as a dessert because we could not wait to taste it after baking. Moist texture - slices easily without crumbs. A perfect bread! Loved every bite and I'm so glad I tagged it in 1.2.3 Hit Wonders game. Thanks Kit!

    This was a great, tasty and easy to make bread! I only used 2 cups of sugar instead of 3--just a preference for less sweet breads. It baked perfectly in 45 minutes in a convection oven, and was surprisingly light: maybe because of the lower sugar? Anyway, it was a hit at home and at work. Thanks again, Kittencal!

    This recipe really "wowed" us. I had all of the ingredients on hand so I decided to try it and I'm so glad I did. I added 1 cup of raisins and used dried sweetened cranberries. If I had to choose between this bread and banana-nut bread this would win hands down. I had a piece for dessert tonight and can't wait to have another with my cup of coffee in the morning. Thanks so much for posting such a great recipe, Kitten!

    This was excellent! I cut the recipe in half easily and used the apple juice. Very moist! Hubby's people at work adored it!

    I made this in Memory of John. No, I didn't know him but I'm sure he was an incredible man. So sorry for Carols loss. Everytime I make this bread I will be thinking of Carol and her family. I took this bread to a Christmas dinner at Grandma's everyone loved it. It was gobbled up by young and old. I took two loaves thinking their would be some to bring back home, but I was sadly mistaken. I came home empty handed and many asked for me to share the recipe. I had to sub in applesauce because I didn't have enough oil. It turned out great. Thanks for posting.
