Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Bread

This pumpkin cranberry walnut bread is a special treat. While I love sweet breads like Easy Banana Bread Recipe (5-ingredients)Blueberry Orange Bread Recipe, and Almond Lemon Bread Recipe, this bread is a bit more savory while still being sweet.

Ingredients

  • Unsalted butter- Use unsalted to control the amount of salt in a recipe.
  • Sugar- The sugar in the recipes makes this bread taste fantastic.
  • Light brown sugar– Brown sugar will add a richer flavor to your recipe.
  • Pure vanilla extract– Always best to use pure vanilla for best flavoring.
  • Eggs- Use room temperature eggs.
  • Pure pumpkin puree– Make sure you are using pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie mix.
  • Milk– You can use whole or 2% milk.
  • Flour– Use all purpose flour for the best results
  • Baking powder– If you only have self rising flour, you will not have to add the baking powder.
  • Baking soda– This will help will doubling your batter.
  • Kosher salt- Salt always brings out the flavors in recipes.
  • Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger– These are traditional seasonings that go with pumpkin.
  • Walnuts– Be sure to chop the walnuts into small pieces.
  • Cranberries– Dried cherries can be substituted for cranberries in a pinch.

Can I Use Canned Cranberries For This Bread?

This recipe is very unique and calls for dried cranberries. You would not be able to use canned cranberries as they would not be dried out. The best option would to be use the cranberries that are in this recipe.

How Long is Pumpkin Cranberry Bread Good?

Your best option for long lasting bread is to store it correctly. If wrapped in plastic wrap, you can leave it on your counter for a few days. To last about a week, you can place your bread in your refrigerator.
