The Recipe


Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 stick soft butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries


Recipe Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan.
  • Pulse cranberries with sugar in a food processor until finely chopped.
  • Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add eggs, vanilla, soft butter and mix well.
  • Mix milk in a bit at a time until well combined. Pour batter into pan.
  • Spoon/swirl cran/sugar mixture into batter.
  • Bake for 50 minutes to an hour. Toothpick must come out clean.

Notes & Options:

There are lots of ways to modify this cake loaf to spice it up, down or just change it to suit your palate. You can try:

– Using fresh cranberries is always best but if you can’t then frozen work just as well.

– Add some extra nuts to the batter gives this loaf a satisfying crunch. I recommend walnuts or almond pieces.

– Brushing the top of the loaf (before it goes into the oven) with melted butter and sugar makes it a tad more appealing to the eye, AND to that first bite.

Make it Healthy – Replacing the sugar in the batter with granulated sweetener will ensure your loaf is sugar free and purely a starch food. Like eating fruit and bread – much healthier.
