Cranberry quick bread

Baking Holiday Bread – Cranberry Nut Quick Bread

Holiday’s are for baking!

Here’s a quick bread I often make around the holidays for gifts.  I buy extra cranberries every year and freeze them so I can make it any time I want!

  2. Cream butter with wet ingredients. Stir soda into flour, then add to the wet mixture. Stir to combine, not too long. Lumps are OK.

  3. Spoon the dough into the pan. Bake loaf for 35 minutes or cupcakes for 15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. While still warm, run a knife around the outside edge of breadpan. Invert onto cooling rack. Enjoy this fake recipe from the kitchen of Monica Lindsey Design 😉
