I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, and it’s my favorite holiday snack now! The cranberries in it are delicious! The bread may get a little hard around the edges but it takes a long time to get the center done.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 8x4x2-inch loaf pans and flour pans using 2 teaspoons flour.
Stir 2 1/4 cups flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk pumpkin, oil, and eggs together in a separate bowl. Pour pumpkin mixture into flour mixture and stir until just combined; fold cranberries and chocolate chips into batter. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
Bake loaves in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

The quality of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always rise as well as white bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then finish it off the next day.
