A Great Cranberry Bread Recipe

This post really has very little to do with prepping.  My wife made the best cranberry bread I have ever had.  It was so delicious; I just wanted to share it with you.

  • 2 cups fresh cranberries or 2 cups frozen cranberries chopped
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil – (I use mashed white beans instead of oil, measured the same)
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemons or 2 teaspoons grated orange rind.
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease the bottoms only of 2 bread pans.  Mix the cranberries, sugar, oil, milk, lemon peel, vanilla and eggs in large bowl.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Pour into bread pans.  Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes.

Loosen sides of loaves from pan and remove from pan.  Cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.  Store tightly wrapped in refrigerator up to a week

Your can ice the loaf with confectioners sugar or you can use cream cheese icing.  I liked the cream cheese icing.

This was great, enjoy it for the holidays.

    Thanks for the recipe. I just love cranberries! i wanted to try it this week. Are the pans 9x5x3 loaf pans or smaller? Oh and the mashed white beans idea is very interesting. Thanks,

      Yes they are. Sorry, I try to put everything in but sometimes my husband is in a hurry and am always behind. (LOL) Am doing mini loafs of these for a meeting and then of course Christmas baking starts. I hope you love it as much as we do. Thanks for writing.
