Maple Sweetened Pecan Pumpkin Bread with Cranberries

I know this is not in season, but I was craving this light fluffy pumpkin bread all day today. So, I threw caution to the wind, and went for it.  For my gluten free visitors, just substitute the barley flour for Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. It turns out just as delicious.

PUMPKIN LOAF

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

1/4 cup dried cranberries
