This quick bread really is quick to whip up! It takes just over an hour to make, including bake time. Get the kids involved for an easy holiday baking activity.
Like all recipes, there are a few vital steps to getting things right. Don’t skip flouring your cranberries before adding them to your bread mixture. This step ensures the cranberries will be evenly dispersed in the bread. Otherwise, the cranberries will sink to the bottom of your bread.
Also, be sure to let the bread cool completely before adding the glaze. If you rush this step, the heat from the bread will cause the glaze to run right off. If you’d like, you can use a toothpick to poke a few holes in the top of the bread before glazing it, to allow some of the glaze to penetrate the center of the bread.
