cranberry bread: a story.

October 13, 2010

cranberry bread, ingredients cool mornings. socked feet. steaming bread and coffee percolating on the stove.

things don’t get much better than this.

growing up we had warm cranberry bread every christmas morning. i have two bags full of cranberries in the freezer waiting for this year’s feast. but in the meantime, i couldn’t stand to wait.

i made this mighty fine little cranberry bread with an extra little addition of rosemary and ginger to keep things exciting. doubled the cranberries. next time, tripling.

the end.

    rosemary and ginger…….great additions. i added fresh grated ginger to my cranberry sauce and the herb would've been another added bonus. next time!

    Why is it so warm in SoCal right now?! I'm dying for fall to start. I might just bite the bullet and make this anyways. Perhaps it will jog our fickle weather into the right season?

    I made this on Sunday– holy wow it was so so good. Mine came out a little crumbly… when I'd cut it into slices it just sort of fell apart.. but it was SO good warm with cold milk. Thanks for posting!

    ginny, glad you liked it! you definitely have to wait for it to cool a bit to avoid the crumblies. but sometimes warm and crumbly isn't so bad, hunh?
