I love baking loaves, all kinds, blueberry, gingerbread, lemon/yogurt, zucchini, banana, whatever, but I saw this recipe and it hit the holiday spot. The problem is a lot of the loaf recipes they sometime make for too bigger quantities for a household of two, and sometimes I’m just cheap enough that I don’t want to donate 3 cups of flour into one recipe.
So with some creative math and a bit of fudging here and there I came up with this one loaf recipe adapted from here.
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinanmon, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/4 tsp nutmeg
t tsp salt
1 c sugar
1/2 14oz can pureed pumpkin
1/2 c vegetable oil + 1/4 c water
1/2 c chopped pecans (or walnuts) 1/2 c dried cranberries
Line a 8 x 4 loaf pan with parchment and grease.
Mix the dry ingredients together, combine the wet, mix in nuts and cranberries. Pour into pan, Bake 50 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
