Kelsey's Favorite Cranberry Bread Recipe

Kelsey's Favorite Cranberry Bread Recipe

My granddaughter, Kelsey, and I saw this recipe and decided we needed to bake together. Kelsey and her sister, Aidan, don't like nuts so I omitted them from the original recipe and added golden raisins. —Annette Grahl, Midway, Kentucky
