I got this recipe from my friend Tracy over at Shutterbean. It’s one of the best quick breads I’ve ever had and not too sweet. More of a bread than a cake, but still soft and moist.
Makes 1 loaf
2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 12 ounce bag of fresh cranberries
1 tablespoon raw sugar
Grease and flour a 9- by 5-inch loaf pan. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Meanwhile combine egg, milk and butter in a small bowl. Add wet mix to dry mix and combine thoroughly then stir in cranberries. Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake until golden brown and a cake tester comes clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Let cool a few minutes. Run a knife around pan to loosen bread. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
I am making this one very soon!

How pretty! The tartness of the cranberries is a really nice touch to a quick bread.
How gorgeous is that bread? Great idea.
‘Tis the season for cranberries!

I’m so in love with cranberries; if I were a little girl I might say I want to marry them. So excited the season is upon us; from breads to sauces to my most favorite cranberry orange liqueur and this does look simple and wonderful; cranberries and brown sugar. My new favorite phrase? OMY – Oh my YUM!

Oh I love this bread, it’s gorgeous and looks delicious!
I made this last night. Delicious. I like that it is not overly sweet and that the taste of the cranberries is not hidden.
I love this! When I make my cranberry bread, I’m definitely going to be putting raw sugar on top to dress it up!

So delicious, Mags. I can’t wait to make this! I might try putting my maple sugar on top.
Pretty. Good. Food. says

I’m making this tonight for our pumpkin carving party! Looks so delicious!
I have a loaf in the oven right now. I just hope it tastes as good as it smells!! Thanks for sharing!
