Pumpkin, Cranberry & Pepita Bread

Since the pumpkin spice craze as taken over the world (halloween costume, anyone??), I've decided to add to it with this awesome pumpkin cranberry pepita bread. It's really delicious! And the kids loved it. It's a favorite amongst everyone- so give it a go! 

Pumpkin, Cranberry & Pepita Bread

1/3 cup milk
2 eggs 

1 1/2 cups pumpkin purée 
2 cups flour 
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda 
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract 
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 1/4 cups dried cranberries 
1/2 cup pepitas, roughly chopped 

2 greased bread pans 
2 large mixing bowls
Mixing spoon 
Measuring cups/spoons
Chopping knife
Cutting board 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In one bowl add flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin spice, both sugars and whisk together. 

In the other bowl add the milk and vinegar. Allow to sit for a minute before whisking in both eggs, vanilla extract and oil. Once combined- pour the wet ingredients on top of the dry ingredients and using a mixing spoon- combine well. 

Once batter is mixed, add in the cranberries and chopped pepitas. Mix into the batter and then divide the batter evenly among the two greased bread pans. 

Place the pans into the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes. The top should be spongy but firm to touch. 

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before running a knife around edges to remove bread from baking pan. 

Enjoy it warm with a little bit of butter, sugar and cinnamon. Oh yay!! Xoxo

Charlie was hesitant at first and has since eaten three pieces!!
