Cranberry Banana Bread

Cranberry Banana Bread

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1/4 cup butter - softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 small bananas - sliced
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 360 degrees. Grease a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan.

Cream the butter and sugar together in a food processor. Add in the eggs one by one, mixing well between each addition. Add in the banana slices, the cranberries, the water and the vanilla extract. Mix again until blended, but try not to over-mix. It's nice if the banana and cranberries are not completely mushed.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients into the batter, and mix until just combined - do not over-mix.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake for approximately 55 minutes or until the top of the cake is nicely brown and a cake tester comes out clean.

Let rest for ten minutes, then run a knife around to loosen the sides, and turn out on a rack to cool completely.

Banana bread is great, but Cranberry Banana Bread is Super Great. Hope you like it as much as I do.

This has become a staple for me! I use craisins instead of whole cranberries and also get fine results just mixing by hand.

VERY TASTY. I made the muffins with my own flour mix from 1 cup of ground oatmeal, 1/4 cup ground flax, and the rest of the 1 3/4 cup of whole wheat flour. They didn't rise as well as I'd hoped, but they're still very tasty and super healthy!
