Lacking pumpkin pie spice I used 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp each of ginger, allspice, and nutmeg-- a good ratio. I used dried cranberries as the recipe stated and I think that they work quite nicely. It didn't rise much, next time I might use a narrower pan to get a higher loaf. It might be nice with additional nuts and perhaps pumpkin seeds sprinkled on top. Make sure you smooth the top before baking, rather than leave strange globs on top like I did-- they don't melt out into the batter as I expected. Overall I would say that this is a pleasant-tasting quickbread and I will make it again, although I may experiement with ways to reduce the sugar.
