This recipe has been a big favorite at my house. For many Christmases, we've made loaves as presents. Got rave reviews! Hope you will enjoy it!

This delicious and moist banana bread will make a wonderful gift at the holidays ... if you don't eat it all first. I loved the cranberry/banana combination. The cranberries add a pop of flavor you don't always get with a banana bread. Plus, your kitchen smells wonderful while this bakes. So good! The Test Kitchen

  • 3/4 tsp
    baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp
    cream of tartar

How to Make Cranberry Banana Tea Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Set oven @ 350 degrees. Combine the first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Mix well. Set aside.
  2. Cream shortening and sugar in a bowl. Add the two eggs and mix well. Alternately, fold in the dry ingredients, banana, and cranberries, ending with cranberries. Last, fold in the nuts.
  3. Bake in a prepared loaf pan for 1 hour. Don't overbake.
    I can hardly wait to get it out of the pan before cutting into it and then slathering it with butter! It cuts cleaner and thinner if you can wait until it is completely cool.
