Poppy Seed Cranberry Bread

I make poppy seed bread about once a month. So one Christmas, I decided to make it a little more festive by stirring in some cranberries. My family loved the colorful addition. —Cindy Harmon, Stuarts Draft, Virginia

    I love this bread! I didn't have cranberries so I substituted blueberries and everyone I've made it for has enjoyed it. Very good!
