Cranberry Bread

I still managed to find whole cranberries after the holiday season was over.  This bread looked too good to resist.  It wasn't originally a gluten free recipe but I just subbed my gluten free flour and it turned out just fine. If you're not gluten free, use regular flour and it will be fine. Maybe a tad crumbly but it didn't stop us from devouring it in record time. 

This was a sweet bread with the slight tartness of the cranberries.  I only regret not making two loaves. 

Gluten Free Cranberry Bread Recipe
Adapted from Katie's Cucina

2 cups gluten free flour**
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 large egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk
4 tbsp. butter, melted
1 - 12 oz. bag of fresh cranberries
1 tbsp. raw sugar

Grease and flour a 9 x 5 in. loaf pan.  Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.  Meanwhile combine egg, milk and butter in a small bowl.  Add wet mix to dry mix and combine thoroughly then stir in cranberries.  Pour batter into prepared pan.  Sprinkle with raw sugar.  Bake until golden brown, about 1 hour 15 minutes.  Let cool for awhile and run a knife around pan to loosen bread.  Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.

**This is how I make my gluten free flour blend. The basic recipe is 2 cups brown rice flour; 2/3 cup potato starch and 1/3 cup tapioca flour. Combine the ingredients together and then measure out however much you need.  I keep it on hand and use as necessary.

  1. You have jewels shining in the bread.

  2. Growing up my Dad used to make a cranberry relish every Thanksgiving using fresh cranberries, oranges and orange zest. I was such a picky eater back then, I am sure I took 1/2 a teaspoon of it and said "no thanks!" I am sure I would love it now!

    I am still able to find fresh cranberries too! :D

  3. My daughter loves cranberries. I'll have to ask her if she'd like this, I don't have whole cranberries in the house, but I'm certain I have dried ones. I'm sure they'd be great too.

  4. Bet this is good! Love those cranberries!
