This pumpkin (cranberry) bread or muffin recipe is so delicious and easily adapted to suit many individual tastes. It can have cranberries or not. It can also be a bread or a muffin. My children like the pumpkin muffins and my favorite was the cranberry pumpkin bread. Thanks to my mom for coming up with that great idea for them!

yum!!! Sounds delicious right now, I could go for some comfort food!
So I was just telling someone today I needed to do something with my bag of cranberries I had in the fridge. This combination of pumpkin and cranberries sounds so good!! Thanks for the inspiration!
I do have a can of pumpkin in the cupboard. Since I don’t have cranberries, maybe I will use raisins, .
You don’t have to use anything. My mom made it with just pumpkin for my children and it was delicious, too!
These do sound wonderful! I may have to change a few things up in order for me (gluten-free) to eat them. But my family is sure going to love these.
Thank you. They are! I’d love to know how the GF version turns out for you! Enjoy!
Hi Tina – Is love to know if you have a good GF pumpkin bread as well? I don’t do a lot of GF baking but I have a 22 month old who is starting to have an interest in some grains and if its cakey thats all the better.
I don’t do much GF baking either. However, I believe there is GF flour or you could substitute coconut or almond flour (or a mixture of all three). Please let me know if you try it! Thank you.
Sounds yummy! I love pumpkin bread.
Looks yummy! Thanks for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays!
