Today I am sharing a super yummy recipe for pumpkin cranberry nut bread. I haven’t made this recipe for awhile, and I forgot how much I love it! We were out of milk a couple mornings ago, so cereal was totally not an option. If we would have had bread, toast would have worked. But alas, no bread either.
This Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Bread is a must make at our house every fall!So I scoured my recipes for something with no milk, and came across this pumpkin bread recipe. I made some into muffins, and my family scarfed them so fast that I actually made another batch the very next day. They are moist and delicious!
 The orange zest makes them a little different from most pumpkin recipes, and it is a yummy twist. You can make pumpkin bread or muffins, I am including the baking directions for both.
