Apple Cranberry Bread

The other day I made Apple Cranberry Bread and said I couldn't post the recipe because I hadn't typed it up yet.  Derp.  I searched this blog and found where I'd posted it back in 2010.  For some reason, I must've typed it directly into the blog because I had no copy on my hard drive, which is why I thought I'd never typed it up.  Now it's a freakin' file, so I can find it when I need it.  Sheesh.

Anyway, here's the recipe (doubled for two loaf convenience, even though I only made one loaf this time around):

Apple Cranberry Bread
(makes two loaves)

4 eggs
1.5 c. sugar
4 T vegetable oil
3 c. flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp Hot Apple Cider drink mix
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 medium granny smith apples (peeled & chopped into 1" pieces)
2 c. fresh cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray two 8x4" loaf pans thoroughly with fat-free cooking spray.  In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar and oil until smooth and fluffy.  In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients.  Slowly stir dry ingredients into wet mixture.  (It will be very thick.)  Stir in apples and cranberries.  Spoon batter into loaf pans.  Bake for 60-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool for ten minutes before tranferring to wire rack or whatever you use for cooling baked goods.  Let cool overnight, slice and serve.

If you don't have the drink mix handy, it's good without it.  It's just better with it.

I need to make some more of this before the rest of the cranberries go funky.  Maybe today.  Or maybe I'll make an Apple Cranberry Crisp.  Also yummy.  We'll see.  Since today is supposed to be colder than a witch's nose, it'd probably be a good day for baking.  Lord knows I won't be going outside.  Brrrr.

Do you bake when it's cold?  


  1. An apple a day.... 😂

    Driving back from the Veterans' Legacy ceremony late last night, I knew I wouldn't have the energy to post my Tuesday Treats until this morning but to save time, I considered the recipes I had saved as drafts and the one I picked? APPLES! And butterscotch. So great minds! I do love me some cranberry bread though I take the easy way and just get a mix. I think it's cool that you "cook from scratch." 😊

  2. I can't wait to try this! Thanks, B.E.!
