Not Too Sweet – Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Bread Sweet Bread

Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Bread

There’s always an abundant supply of pie pumpkins at our house this time of year.  Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Cookies and since I am not a big sweet fan my favorite Pumpkin Cranberry Walnut Bread.  This recipe is not overly sweet and has half the sugar as regular sweet bread.  A perfect pair to a cup of tea or coffee on a cool fall evening.
