Cranberry Pumpkin Bread with White Chocolate Chunks
Makes one 9 – inch
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 - 55 minutes

2          cups all-purpose flour
1          tsp baking soda
1          tsp baking powder
2          tsp pumpkin spice
½         tsp salt
1          (15 oz ) can pumkin
1          cup sugar
8          tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted and cooled
2          large eggs
2          teaspoons vanilla extract
1          cup craisens
1          cup white chocolate chunk

11.      Heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with vegetable oil spray.
22.      Whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin spice and salt together in a large bowl. Whisk the pumpkin, sugar, melted butter, eggs and vanilla together in a separate bowl until frothy.
33.      Gold the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just combined. Fold in the craisens and white chocolate chunks.
44.      Scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few crumbs attached, 45-55 minutes.
55.      Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes before unmolding onto a wire rack to cool for 1 hour.

To adapt to the smaller loaf reduce cooking time to about 30 minutes, depending on loaf size check at 25 minutes.

Happy Baking!
