TWD/BWJ: Cranberry-Walnut Pumpkin Loaves

Seems like EONS ago that I made this bread. Picture dates say Oct 6 and 7 which was a few days late to begin with. So I'm only 2 weeks past the "official" baking date posting this.

Guess I'm not one of those competitive bakers waiting for midnight to hit so I can be first to post my link, LOL!

At least I'm trying to keep up.

Life's been a little overwhelming lately, so I count this as an accomplishment. Yesterday was my husband's second chemo treatment.

So far, so good. Let's get this done.

Truth be told, I don't think I'll make this bread again. Must confess that I have an intense affection for nice, sweet, easy pumpkin nut quick breads. Held hostage to my unrefined palate. And after a week-long search for fresh cranberries, I didn't like them in the bread. Too sour for me. The Craisins that I used were good though.  So I'll probably add them to my next quick bread...

The recipe for this 2-day yeasted bread can be found here, and other baker's links are here.

Now I can share the other shoe we saw just outside Tuskegee, Alabama this summer... a loafer!


  1. Ha, a loafer! Your bread looks good. I won't be making this again either - my quick bread is so much better and "quicker"! Hoping that the second chemo went well. Sending positive thoughts your way.

    1. Thanks Cathleen! We appreciate all positive energy!

  2. Slow and steady wins the race :-)

    Hope all goes well with treatments.

  3. Hi Margaret, happy to catch up with your more recent posts. I agree, the cranberries while pretty were sour. hope your hubby's chemo treatments cause minimal discomfort and maximum benefit!!! I'll be thinking of you both. sending support and love your way.~marilyn
    p.s. love the loafer! ;)

  4. I used frozen cranberries and they worked great. I agree this was a lot of work, but I really did like it. Your loaves are beautiful. Sending positive thoughts for continued uneventful chemo treatments.
