I found a recipe years ago that looked like just the right one for Cranberry Bread, but it needed a few adjustments. After years of making this bread, I think I have it just right. Everybody always asks for another slice!

How to Make Abundant Cranberry Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease (2) 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pans.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and soda in a large bowl.
  3. Cut in butter until crumbly.
  4. Add beaten egg, orange peel and juice. Stir until mixture is evenly moist.
  5. Fold in raisins and cranberries. Spoon into 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pans. (It's best to divide between 2 pans because the bread rises and will spill over the edges).
  6. Place in the preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until the bread begins to pull away from sides of pan and cake tester inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
