Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Here's a sweet treat that's perfect for the holidays.

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

3 c sugar
1 15oz can of pumpkin puree
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 T lemon juice
1/2 c apple juice
3 cups flour
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground cloves
2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t salt
1 cup fresh cranberries

Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease and flour two 9x5" loaf pans.  Beat together sugar, pumpkin, eggs, and juices in large mixing bowl.  In separate bowl, sift together flour, spices, baking soda and salt.  Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients - until just moistened.  Evenly distribute batter between the two loaf pans.  Bake for 60-65 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  Remove from pans when no longer hot and allow to cool completely on wire rack or tinfoil sheets.  Slice and serve.

The Kid made this recipe for the first time yesterday.  It's pretty awesome.  Make sure you do a good job with the whole grease and flour thing. though, because you do not want these bad boys to stick to the pans and fall apart (especially if you're planning on giving them as gifts or setting the slices out for guests).  Tasty, tasty mess, but a mess just the same.
