I play with the ingredients too, I used fresh pumpkin not canned, add old fashion oats, used light brown sugar 4 teaspon. I used a package of corn bread mix, add raisins mixed with cranberries and also I used olive oil in it. Turned out very good.
Pumpkin & Cranberry Bread
Cornmeal gives this moist quick bread a subtle crunch. Pumpkin puree and dried cranberries make it particularly festive.

Made some substitutions and it turned out great!
I only used 1 cup of sugar (instead of 2), subbed 1/3 cup apple sauce for the 1/3 cup oil which added a natural sweetness and subbed toasted pumpkin seeds for the dried cranberries.
Sorry, too dense for my taste. Was damp, rather than *moist*. Needed more spice, too; this combo was rather bland.
I made this with my kids on a snowy day. It was easy to make and it came out great. The kids ate two slices each after dinner and asked for more!
I made this for a luncheon featuring healthy options. The ladies went nuts over this. I thought it was just okay but they all raved and asked for the recipe. I followed the recipe but had to used half dark brown sugar/half light. Also, I used about 1.25 cups craisins and the rest raisins.
