Fresh Cranberry Bread

Country fresh cranberry bread is a quick and easy recipe made with plump fresh cranberries, sugar, egg, the juice of an orange and finely ground pecans. Serve this quick bread for breakfast or brunch.

This sweet bread can be served warm or cold and with or without real butter. Sweet cream cheese or cream cheese spread also balances well with tart cranberries and makes a nice spread for many sweet breads.

One of the things that makes this quick bread stand out is using fresh cranberries. You can buy full bags of them in the refrigerated section of most larger grocery stores.

Fresh cranberries give an extra burst of flavor that is hard to beat. I use a food processor to coarsely grind up the fresh berries.

It is a delightful combination of a sweet quick bread and tart cranberries. The beautiful dark red cranberries in this recipe will make a colorful addition to your breakfast or brunch menu this weekend. It also looks quite festive on the table when served for a Thanksgiving or Christmas brunch.
