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

How to Make Cranberry Banana Tea Loaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Set oven at 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.
  4. 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.
