Cranberry Bread

Growing up I remember my mom always  making cranberry bread during the late fall months. I made a loaf of cranberry bread the week leading into Thanksgiving so my guest would have something quick and delish to munch on for breakfast (or dessert or for a late night snack)!

This bread recipe is perfect! The bread is dense yet moist and the tones of cranberries you can find throughout! This is a simple recipe that any novice baker could make and wow their guest! I plan to bake another batch for my guest who will be celebrating Christmas with us next week!

    This sounds so good! I might try it with a gluten free flour and see how it turns out, thanks!
