    Love the tartness of the cranberries and the crunch of the nuts. I made it in four smaller loaf pans to I can share and freeze.

    Just made this and it is very very good! Only change I made was to use coconut oil instead of canola. The tartness of the cranberries work so well. Can't wait for the rest of the family to try it out as I think they will love it, too.

    This is such a great holiday bread recipe! I love and make the recipe just as it is. It 's wonderful to give away loaves of this bread as gifts during holiday time.

    This is the best pumpkin bread I have ever tasted. I have made this numerous times. My husband and kids love it. I have used dried cranberries when I could not get fresh but it was not as good as fresh. Now I stock up on cranberries around Thanksgiving and freeze them so I can make this recipe year round.

    Best pumpkin bread ever, and the fresh cranberries add a nice tartness. Can't wait to make again.
