Apple Cranberry Bread

by GettingFreedom on October 10, 2011

I first made this bread a few years back and it instantly became a favorite, not only did my husband request it often but so did the children. With fresh apples, cranberries and walnuts, how could I not answer their pleas with a slice?


Apple Cranberry Bread
1 ½ cups flour {can use whole wheat or all purpose}

3/4 cup sugar

1½  tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

2 eggs

2 Tbsp applesauce {or oil}

2 cups chopped apples; peeled

1 cup cranberries {fresh or frozen}

½ cup chopped walnuts {optional–but they do add that extra touch!}

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.  In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and applesauce {or oil if you prefer}.  Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, just until moistened.  The batter will be very thick, that’s exactly what you are looking for.  When the bread bakes, the appels and cranberries will add in moisture. Fold in the apples, cranberries and walnuts.

Spread batter into a lightly buttered/greased bread pan and bake for 60-65 minutes in a 350° oven.  Let bread cool for 10 minutes before slicing.


This bread is packed with tart flavor and is perfect for gift giving. Just be sure to include the recipe, because it’s sure to be a hit!
