Cranberry Apple Pumpkin Bake – Blogger Secret Ingredient

This week’s Blogger Secret Ingredient is hosted by The Fitnessista and she chose cranberries!  I love cranberries.  Back in high school my favorite band was the Cranberries, and I loved to snack on Craisins – so much so that my screenname still has the word cranberry in it.  If you ever want to chat, ask me what it is 🙂  This recipe is full of fall flavours and I really enjoyed it.

Cranberry Apple Pumpkin Bake


  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1.25 cups of cranberries (I used frozen)
  • about 3 cups of chopped pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Mix all the ingredients except the cheddar together in a bowl.
  3. Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and pour in the mix.  Top with the shredded cheddar.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes.  ENJOY!  I think another great addition would be some chopped nuts on the top.  Try it out and let me know.

I had mine with delicious baked tofu:

  1. Wow, it looks so colorful and delicious!

    Thanks for sharing! I actually just got some cranberries in the freezer. I’ll give you a shout out if I do try it! Thanks!

  2. That looks tasty. The cheddar on top reminds me of how some people I know put cheddar on their apple pie. It’s one of those things that sounds weird at first, but some how the savory/sweet combo just works.
