I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and it's my favorite holiday snack now! The cranberries in it are delicious! The bread may get a little hard around the edges but it takes a long time to get the center done.

Pour pumpkin mixture into flour mixture and stir until just combined; fold cranberries and chocolate chips into batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.

I made this a couple of days ago for our church women's coffee gathering and everyone loved it. I left a small loaf at home and my husband ate it and asked "who made this?" I did! "This is good!" He said. I used 1/2 cup less sugar and it was still a too sweet. I didn't even put in chocolate chips. Will use 1 cup sugar (cranberry is sweet too) when I make this next time. I used only 3/4 c sugar for 2 c flour to make banana bread. Read More

It was a little dense but delicious! The recipe says to use TWO loaf pans but I thought there was not enough batter for two pans because they were small loaves. Next time I'll put it all in one loaf pan and see what happens. The sugar can be cut down by a half cup and still be good. Read More
