    Too oily

    S Mlouie from

    Though the bread was tasty, I found the texture of the bread too oily. I would cut the oil in half and replace with water or other liquid but not fat.

    Altered recipe

    Gabrielle Duszak from Philadelphia, PA

    I made this recipe using only one teaspoon of salt instead of 1 and a half teaspoons. Also I used only 1/2 cup of oil instead of 1 cup, and 1 cup of light brown sugar with 1 cup regular sugar, added a capful of vanilla too. I agree that one cup of cranberries isn't enough, so I added a 1/2 cup more. Instead of using apple juice I used a mixture of pear and cranberry juices. Tweaking the recipe this way gave it more of a bread feel, and an adult taste. My coworkers loved it!

    Yummy...

    JEANNE Welker from BROKEN ARROW, OK

    I made this for my daughters kindergarten Thanksgiving feast at school. They are so good. Next time I am going to add more berries, 1 cup of fresh berries doesn't go far when you make this as muffins. But, the pumpkin taste is wonderful. This recipe is replacing the family recipe I have been making for years. Yummy....

    Good Pumpkin Bread

    Bernadette Phillips from GERVAIS, OR

    This bread is good and very moist. The cranberries are so tart that next time I'm going to try throwing in a few white chocolate chips to have a sweet/tart combination. I spread some powdered sugar icing on the top and that was very good.

    Great recipe, nice and moist and smells great when baking. I made this for my mom, she was taking it to a party. She said it went so fast that I had to make more for the follow weekend because some of her friends didn't get to try it.

    Big Hostess Gift Hit!

    Sandra Simpson from GOODLETTSVILLE, TN

    During the holidays, we attend several holiday gatherings at friends and this was the hit of the season. I soon began taking multiple loaves with me to these gatherings. It really was simple to make and you can make several and freeze them. Fresh cranberries are the best.

    pumpkin cranberry bread

    MARGARET PHILPOTT from NEWPORT NEWS, VA

    this is the most baked after bread in my family. I have all ready made it 4 times since I found the recipe. the last time I made it, the loafs went into the freezer and are hidden away. I wanted to check out the freezer and see if the bread was still good. It was believe you me. my family could not tell the difference. so this bread is a must in my home now that I have found a wonderful recipe for good things to eat.

    Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

    Phyllis Minich from BUTLER, PA

    I made this for Christmas. Decided to try this one as I had some left over apple juice to use up. Everyone loved it. My son-in-law ask me if I had another loaf(I made mine in mini pans) so he could take it home. His birthday is in Feburary and he's not a big cake eater so I'm going to make this for his birthday instead of cake.

    Great gift Bread

    Chris First from ALBION, PA

    Easy to make, love the burst of cranberries in this bread. Made it for gifts in small pans for the holidays. I added 1/2 cup more cranberries for the larger loaves.

    Good Stuff!

    Gail Martin from BRENTWOOD, CA

    I took my first loaf to work on a construction jobsite and the craftsmen were wild about it. Some wanted the recipe for their wives so they could have it more often.

    pumpkin cranberry bread

    Susan Ferguson from Watertown, MA

    My mother-in-law made this for me for Thanksgiving. I didn't get a chance to try it until several days later, and it was absolutely delicious. Moist and flavorful. I was really very surprised, seeing as so many days had gone by that it was still excellent. I can't wait to make it for myself. I will probably add some walnuts or pecans.

    Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

    MARILYN GROW from Chimacum, WA

    This is my favorite bread to make as it stays so moist and also freezes well. Have been asked for the recipe many times and always take it to meetings or potlucks. I usually make two 9 x 5 loaves.

    Always delicious

    JUDY CASEY from CHATHAM, NJ

    I love making this recipe for pumpkin bread. The cranberries help to make it very moist and give it a nice extra. I also like that it makes three loaves at a time...great time saver around the holidays.

    Moist and Delicious Pumpkin Bread

    ALI MALLARE from Leawood, KS

    This recipe is amazing! I absolutely love pumpkin bread. I am not a huge fan of pumpkin pie...I can take it or leave it...but boy do I like a nice, dense, rich, flavorful pumpkin bread, and now I have found it. I tried this recipe with the cranberries once and with raisins once instead, and both were absolutely wonderful. My mommy loves dried cranberries in bread. So, she likes the original recipe the best, but raisins are great used in this recipe too, especially if you are a fan or raisins. Thanks so much for another awesome recipe. Yummy! I probably won't wait for Christmas or Thanksgiving to make this bread again!

    Made him a believer!

    Donna Guajardo from Houston, TX

    My husband is not a big fan of pumpkin, but I am. When I tried this recipe on him, he became a believer. He now asks me to make it, not only for him but for clients he is trying to impress. He asked me to make a loaf as a 'thank-you' to a teller at the bank, who had gone out of her way to help him with a difficult transaction. She asked for the recipe (and of course I gave it to her!).

    Sweet and Tangy

    Juliana Simone from Woodland Hills, CA

    I've made this bread for years when I first saw the recipe in a Libby's ad in a magazine. Easy to make and very satisfying taste wise. It's nutritious and has a good texture to it. Always a favorite.

    Pumpkin Cranberry Bread- A New Thanksgiving Tradit

    Jesabel Cruz from Newark, NJ

    I made several desserts for this year's Thanksgiving dinner: pumpkin pie, shortbread cookies, Heavenly Chocolate Cheesecake and Pumpkin Cranberry Bread. Well, the latter was the rave with all my guests, taking seconds and even thirds! I made the recipe as a large loaf and used remaining mix for mini loaves. They would make great gifts for family and friends. This is definitely a new Thanksgiving tradition at my home... thank you, so much!!!
