Glazed Cranberry Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Pairing canned pumpkin and cranberry sauce in a quick bread was Blanche Whytsell's imaginative idea. "The result is moist and tasty," she divulges from her Arnoldsburg, West Virginia kitchen. "The orange glaze drizzled over the loaf adds a colorful finishing touch."
