Sweet Potato Cranberry Sauce Bread

Uses up these two holiday leftovers. It has a festive flavor and is so moist! I made this up based on another recipe and made it specific to what I had on hand. You can do the same. I love the combo of nutmeg and allspice... it just says holidays!

Cranberry Banana Oat Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 46
A fun twist on banana bread. The cranberries add a sweet and tart flavor that really kicks up the flavor of this bread. Super moist and super flavorful, it's a great addition to brunch! If you like more of a buttery taste, try brushing the top of the baked loaf with a pastry brush and a little bit of melted butter.

Cranberry Oat Bread

Rating: 4.5 stars 36
This is a wonderful, moist bread, made in a bread machine. This is a one-and-a-half pound bread recipe. Instead of a cup, I throw in a whole bag of cranberries.

Cranberry Apple Bread

Rating: 4 stars 151
This apple cranberry bread is a holiday favorite in our family. It's very festive and a wonderful breakfast bread for Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. I like to prepare the bread batter ahead of time and thaw it the night before serving it. Just pop it in the oven in the morning, and you'll have fresh breakfast bread. Enjoy!
