Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

November 25, 2009

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbls. plus 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups sugar
2 cups pumpkin
3 large eggs
¾ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup apple sauce
½ cup orange juice
1 or 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped

Combine flour, pie spice, baking soda and salt; set aside.  In mixing bowl blend sugar, eggs, oil, apple sauce, orange juice, and pumpkin; mix well.  Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, stir just until moistened.  Fold in cranberries.  Spoon batter into two 9 x 5 greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until done.  Remove from pans to cool.

Note:  this recipe originally called for 1 cup of chopped cranberries, but I like to use  two cups.  Also, walnuts would be a good addition to this recipe.
