Cranberry Bread Recipe


I was a fresh cranberry newbie. I don't know what it was about these beautiful berries, but I had kept my distance. After receiving a baking order for cranberry bread, I thought it was about time to start incorporating cranberries into my holiday baking. I bought 3 bags of berries--so don't be surprised if there is a surprising number of cranberry-ful recipes in the near future!   

Cranberry Bread Recipe
Makes 1 - 9x5 loaf

2 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups fresh cranberries
raw sugar


Grease a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Meanwhile combine egg, milk and oil in a small bowl. Beat in sugars. Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients and combine thoroughly. Gently stir in cranberries. Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake until golden brown and a cake tester comes clean, about 55 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes in the pan. Run a knife around pan to loosen bread. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
