White Chocolate Cranberry Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
Tangy cranberries complement the appealing vanilla-citrus flavor of this quick bread shared by Ruth Burrus, a field editor from Zionsville, Indiana. The fine texture of her holiday loaf is similar to a pound cake.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2011

i read the previous review that mentioned the overbrowning problem, therefore watched very carefully to try and avoid it happening - but still by the time the center tested done the rest of the loaf was hard as a brick. The flavor inside was nice, but i will probably stick with some other quick bread recipes i have that are foolproof.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 3, 2009

I have made this recipe several times. Absolutely delish! Very quick to mix up. I need to adjust my baking because the outside got a little dry and browned. Maybe make two smaller loafs.
