Great Taste & Sensibly Delicious

Have been baking this bread for a long time. It is not just a Fall bread. Because of the blend of pumpkin and cranberries, my family requests that I bake it year round--at least twice a month.

This is a great pumpkin bread. It is delicious & lo-cal too,(in place of the oil, I use applesauce) what more could you ask for. I always make extra loafs to give away to friends.

I have made this bread for at least five years and whenever I make it, people always want the recipe! The flavors work best in the fall, but I like to make this any time of the year. It is easy to make, tastes good, and is good for you!

Our 2 yr. old granddaughter is a type 1 diabetic and cannot eat many of the holiday treats but this one was a hit with her and her parents. She could have a small piece and not worry about her blood sugar going too high. It's a great recipe.

This was a very easy recipe. The results are just as good as the original. The second batch I made using one cup of sugar and one-half a cup of brown sugar and there was no difference in taste. All the loaves went very fast and lots of compliments.

Delicious Crowd Pleaser!

I used sugar instead of Splenda, and the loaf and muffins I made went faster than the cookies they were beside...very nice crust and wonderfully moist inside.
