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.

    I would never have thought of adding cranberries, but that sounds really good. I’ll have to try this with a loaf!

    Nothing beats a nice, warm, homemade loaf of bread. This pumpkin cranberry loaf looks so good. I have never tried combining those two. This looks like something we all would enjoy. Another reason I look forward to the fall.

    I think this is something my kids will like so I’ll have to give this a try. Do you think adding the cranberries into the batter so it is mixed throughout would work okay?
