Cran-Apple Bread

Nor A.M


The basic recipe is a recipe I got from my sister Joan for apple bread. I turned it into a Cranapple nut bread and added a crumb topping. There is something about mixing the sugars with the fruit first, that adds a different level of sweetness to the recipe.

I had been making her apple bread recipe for about 20 years. Which, I also have posted. I thought I’d switch it up a bit.

The bread came out excellent. I hope you all enjoy this delicious bread.
