Cranberry Quick Bread

There happened to be some cranberry jelly left from this invention. This meant it was time to come up with a creative way to use it up. Cranberry sauce could be substituted if you don’t want to make the jelly. If you do, follow the recipe from the link above.

Cranberry Quick Bread

  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup shelled raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup cranberry jelly/sauce
  • 2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 eggs

Mix everything but the cranberry jelly in a bowl over medium speed until well blended. Heavily grease a bread pan and pour in 3/4 of the batter. Spoon the jelly into the center leaving a 1/4 border of batter around the entire pan. Cover with remaining batter. Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees and bake until a knife passes cleanly through the loaf, about an hour. Let the bread cool completely before removing from the pan.

    What a coincidence! I just made a sourdough with cranberries, and loved it! Great addition for bread, I did not expect to like it so much!

    stay tuned, I’ll be blogging on it sometime in the near future….

    I was expecting to see some fresh/dried cranberries but adding the jelly would bring a ton more flavor, too. Great idea & recipe, Greg.

    Buttermilk makes for such a tender loaf of sweet bread and the cranberries, such a tartful bite! Num!

  10. I love it. This would be perfect on my plate. Love the addition of the jelly.

    I love cranberry bread. It will be nice to try with buttermilk.

  12. Now, I never would have thought of adding jelly! That must have tasted wonderful!

  13. It looks amazing Greg. I don’t have any cranberry jam, but don’t mind going to the store if the result is this bread… πŸ˜‰

    The colour is yummy!! This is a beautiful cranberry bread πŸ™‚
    I love the sunflower seeds and jelly added to the recipe. This is unique. I am definitely going to attempt making this!

    I hope you don’t mind if I reblog your link on my reblog tastings I page?

  16. Mmm, would dried crannies work by any chance? I see those more than frozen ones… Looks delicious πŸ™‚ Oh, how about the canned ones that come in the sauce? Not worth the risk…or…?

  18. Only few more weeks and off to Bangkok (minus plaster by then, πŸ™‚ :)) and I will have a chance to go on a food- (and other) shopping trip – so tinned cranberries are already on my list now. Thanks Greg. Carina
