Cranberry Nut Bread I
Bread came out tasty but a little dry and crumbly. I used 1 cup all purpose flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour, 2 cups of whole cranberries and the orange zest was from a spice jar. The rest of the ingredients were exactly as listed in the original recipe. When I poured the wet into the dry ingredients, it became very apparent that there wasn't quite enough "wet" to blend. But I got the job done. Bread was done in 50 minutes, which is unusual for my "slow" oven. The first piece was warm and delicious. But the next morning it was a bit dry and crumbly. A bit disappointing. Next time I will try another reviewers suggestion and add a second egg. I will also check it around 48 minutes in the oven. The flavor of this recipe is really good, but it does need some tweaking.

Banana Pancakes I
Great pancake recipe with the following substitutions: I used 3/4 cup white flour and 1/4 cup whole wheat. Instead of white sugar, I used turbinado sugar. I definitely didn't want to add vegetable oil so I substituted apple butter. I added 2T cinnamon but will reduce this to 1T next time. Lastly, after reading other reviews concerning size of bananas, I used 1 1/3 large bananas. Next time, I will likely use only 1 large banana. I used my Kitchen Aid standing mixer and the batter came out great. These were the first ever pancakes that I made that actually came out looking and tasting like pancakes! I topped mine with powdered sugar but my husband used maple syrup. Both are great options.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins
These muffins ultimately came out very good. But the can of organic pumpkin that I used lacked enough moisture for the box of cake mix. Perhaps non-organic pumpkin might have worked better? I have a Weight Watcher recipe that uses 1 can of pumpkin and an angel food cake mix. That works fine. But when I couldn't get the Easy Pumpkin Muffins to work, I added some organic cinnamon applesauce (unsweetened). It took about a cup of applesauce to finally get the moisture needed to mix. Baking took a bit longer (30 minutes), but the finished product is tasty! The addition of applesauce turned out to be a nice touch.
