“Cornmeal gives this moist quick bread a subtle crunch. Pumpkin puree and dried cranberries make it particularly festive.”


    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
    • 1 cup cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
    • 2 cups packed brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons baking soda
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 15- or 16-ounce can plain pumpkin puree, (1½ cups)
    • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
    • ⅓ cup canola oil
    • 2 large eggs
    • 2 large egg whites
    • 2 cups dried cranberries, or raisins


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat two 9-by-5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray; dust with flour and tap out the excess.
  • 2 Combine all-purpose and whole-wheat flours, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a mixing bowl; mix well, breaking up any lumps of brown sugar with your fingertips. Whisk together pumpkin, yogurt, oil, eggs and egg whites in another bowl until well combined. Stir the pumpkin mixture and cranberries (or raisins) into the dry ingredients until completely blended, but do not overmix. Divide the batter between the loaf pans, smoothing the tops with a spatula. Bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes. Let the loaves rest in the pans for 5 minutes; turn them out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
