  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 2 (8x4-inch) loaf pans with shortening or cooking spray. In large bowl, mix flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, ginger and baking soda until well blended.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, stir milk, maple syrup, oil, vanilla and eggs until well blended. Stir into flour mixture until well mixed. Stir in cranberries and pecans. Spoon batter evenly into pans.
  • 3
    Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Wrap tightly and store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • *To toast pecans, heat oven to 350°F. Spread pecans in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • Cranberries can get away from you and roll right off the cutting board if you try to chop too many at once. Chop just a small handful at a time for more control.
  • This recipe makes two loaves—one for now and one to wrap tightly and store in the freezer for later.
