Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease an 8x4-inch loaf pan. In a large bowl stir together flour, 3/4 cup of the sugar, the baking powder, soda, and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture.

  • In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in cranberries, 1/2 cup of the pepitas, and tangerine zest.

  • Spoon batter into prepared loaf pan. Coarsely chop the remaining 1/4 cup pepitas. In a small bowl combine the chopped pepitas and the remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Sprinkle evenly over batter.

  • Bake about 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cover with foil the last 5 to 10 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning, if necessary. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely.
