Cranberry-Pumpkin Loaf

In my effort not to decorate the entire house in fall colors this afternoon
I decided to attempt a recipe I've been meaning to try.

It is so easy, makes the house smell so good and taste yummy.
Now go....QUICK to the store and buy the ingredients...you will not be disappointed.
And it adds a little Fall feeling to the house without the husband calling in the white coats!

Cranberry-Pumpkin Loaf

2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup oil
1 cup canned pumpkin
16 oz can whole-berry cranberry sauce (i bought the 14oz can and it was just fine)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 cup chopped pecans

Blend together sugar, eggs, oil, pumpkin and cranberry sauce in a large bowl; set aside.  In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, baking soda and spice.  Add flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture, a little at a time; stir until well mixed.  Stir in pecans.  Spread batter into 2 lightly greased and floured 9 X 5 loaf pans.   Bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Makes 2 loaves.
