Banana~Cranberry Bread

recipe adapted from Joy the Baker.



...taste as good as she looks.

So I had leftover cranberries and was so excited baking with them that I thought I would bake some more!!

I was going to make some banana bread and figured I add some cranberries too. Never had this before and it is delicious!

Recipe ~


3 to 4 ripe bananas, mashed (I left mine a little chunky due to personal preference)

1/3 cup melted salted butter

1 cup light brown sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp bourbon( I didn't have bourbon so I used an extra tsp vanilla and 2 tsp water)

1 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

pinch of ground cloves

1 1/2 cup of flour

1 cup fresh cranberries


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix melted butter into mashed bananas in large bowl with a wooden spoon.

Mix in sugar, egg, vanilla and bourbon.

Then add the spices and mix.

Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.

Add the flour and mix.

Add the cranberries. ( I coated them with flour to prevent them from sinking) and stir until just incorporated.

Pour mixture into buttered loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour.

Cool on rack then remove from pan and slice to serve.


Okay, I have to end this post now. There is a slice with my name on it waiting for me......
