This easy-to-make Pumpkin Cranberry Loaf recipe combines two popular fall flavors for one tasty baked treat with a yummy smell.
Fall. It may not technically be here yet according to a calendar, but in my mind it arrived here the day school started. Fall brings to mind a number of scents and flavors, with pumpkin certainly being amongst the most popular ones. A day of pumpkin picking makes for a fun family outing here in the Garden State. Many folks don’t realize this, but another thing we have here in New Jersey, and are actually known for, is our cranberries. We have bogs not far from here and they’re pretty neat to see. This recipe for Pumpkin Cranberry Loaf combines two popular fall flavors for one yummy baked treat. Here’s instructions for how to make it.
