Fall is my absolute favorite season! And the arrival of fall means that pumpkin-spice-everything is everywhere. I shared my quick and simple recipe for how to make your own pumpkin spice, and a friend asked for a pumpkin bread, so I got to it!
I am a lover of cranberries and thought that a pumpkin bread with dried cranberries would be a fun new way to eat a classic bread. The walnuts are completely optional, but I find they provide a great texture to the bread. This Cranberry Walnut Pumpkin Spice Bread is very simple and quick to make, it just has an hour long baking time. While in the oven, the smell from the bread makes your entire house smell like fall which makes me so happy! And because this bread is so simple, it makes a great gift.
I must admit, I got all giddy when I sliced into the bread and saw the chunks of walnuts and dried cranberries scattered throughout. If a bread is going to have mix-ins, there should be a lot of them! And it makes the bread look so pretty, too. I like to put some extra ingredients on top, in this case walnuts and cranberries, so it is instantly recognizable as to what is in the bread.
