Meet the Cook: Some of my friends prefer this slightly sweet bread to fruitcake. My family enjoys it at Christmastime. I'll make it for potlucks, too, and I've found that friends like it for brunch and breakfast.
Recently, my husband and I marked our golden anniversary. We're the parents of two and grandparents of two.

My family looks forward to this flavorful combination of cranberry bread and fruitcake for the holidays. Baked in smaller pans, the pretty loaves make a nice gifts. The bread also freezes well. I got this recipe from a woman at church before my husband retired as minister.
