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."

"I didn't think there was enough cranberry or pumpkin taste. . I was surprised at the amount of flour that was added. It was moist, but nothing to rave about."

"This bread was delicious. The only changes I made were, I added a cup of cinnamon chips and divided the recipe into three smaller loaf pans. The flavors were so great! I'm making it again!"

"This is the most wonderful cranberry pumpkin bread recipe ever. I have been making it since it first appeared in the Country woman 1998 issue. I get raves every year when I make it as gifts for Christmas. Ü"
