The Best I've Tasted So Far!

I've been baking this bread to give as gifts for the past couple years now and have yet to see it not turn out perfectly. It's moist and flavorful and freezes beautifully too.

Looks GREAT!!!

I'm a member of the juicy bunch and this recipe reminds me of one at that i tried and loved! This one's next and im positive ill love it! Cant wait!

Great Recipe! Cranberry tip...

This is a perennial favorite with family and friends. EXCELLENT hostess gift that most everyone can enjoy. I use fresh cranberries doubling the quantity. I blanch the additional half of the cranberries and divide for each loaf - sprinkle each portion on top of loaf before baking (I go right down the center of the loaf) for a beautiful presentation. I always get questions about where I bought the "fancy" bread! Get ready for oodles of compliments and perhaps a few orders from your not-so-baking-friendly friends.

Gift-Giving Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

We loved the pumpkin cranberry bread. To try and make an even healthier version, I substituted half of the flour with wheat flour, and used applesauce instead of oil. Turned out to be deliciously moist and tasty.
