This was my first try at baking something that I didn't use someone else's recipe step by step. Instead I came up with some of my own ingredients. I haven't actually tried it yet because I'm saving it for breakfast (thought it is probably much yummier right now). The crumbs tasted pretty good though.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 16-ounce can pumpkin
3 cups flour (1 1/2 cups whole wheat, 1 1/2 white)
1 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup crushed walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.
Sift flour, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, and baking powder into a large bowl.
Beat the sugar, oil, and applesauce in another large bowl to blend. Mix in the eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla. Add flour mix in 2 additions. Mix in cranberries and a small portion of the walnuts.
Divide batter equally between the two pans. Sprinkle remaining walnuts on top. Bake until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes in non-stick pans.
