Gooseberry Patch

Have I mentioned before that I love Gooseberry Patch?? Well, I do.

Here's a recipe that we love from one of their books:
Cranberry-Pecan Pumpkin Bread

2  15-oz. cans pumpkin
2/3 c. milk
1 c. oil
4 eggs, beaten
3 c. sugar
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 T. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cayenne pepper (we dont use this)
1-1/2 c. chopped pecans
1-1/2 c. sweetened, dried cranberries

Mix together pumpkin, milk, oil, eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl; set aside.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt and spices; add to pumpkin 
mixture. Stir in nuts and cranberries. Pour into three greased 9" x 5" loaf pans, 
filling each 1/2 full. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour, or until done. Cool completely
before removing from pans. Makes 3 loaves.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Bake this recipe in mini loaf pans for even MORE treats to share...just adjust 
the baking time accordingly and test loaves with toothpicks to make sure they're done in the middle.
