Cooking from Scratch - Holiday Cranberry Bread

Cranberries are so good for you, but honestly they don't taste very good by themselves. I have been playing around in the kitchen trying to come up with a fancier kind of holiday bread and really wanted to use cranberries. Not just because they are good for you but also because they are in season now, only around the holidays. Here is the delicious recipe that I came up with. I plan to give it out to all my son's teachers, made in individual loaf pans.


2 cups self rising flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup oil

1 egg

orange juice

1 cup cranberries

1/4 cup white chocolate chips


Stir together the flour and sugar. In a two cup measuring cup put the oil (any kind) and egg. Then pour orange juice in, filling to the 1 and 1/2 cup line. Stir together with a fork and pour into the dry ingredients. Stir well. Chop 3/4 of the cup of cranberries and add to the batter stirring just until mixed in. Pour batter into a greased bread pan. Chop the rest of the cranberries and sprinkle over the top. Then sprinkle the white chocolate chips over the top. Bake at 400 for 45 minutes.  If you are using individual bread pans, 45 minutes will be too long, so watch them carefully.  You can also make muffins, baking for just 18-20 minutes.

Jennifer this looks so yummy! My kids and I love a cookie that is made with cranberries and white chocolate so I imagine the bread would be just as good! Thank you!
