Abundant Cranberry Bread Recipe @pinch

Packed with fresh cranberries and dried fruit, this abundant cranberry bread lives up to its name. It has a similar texture to fruit cake but is full of cranberry orange flavor. Serve warm with a slather of butter during the holiday season for a delicious treat. Or, package a loaf and share it with a friend. This cranberry bread would make a lovely homemade gift. I found a recipe years ago that looked like just the right one for cranberry bread, but it needed a few adjustments. After years of making this bread, I think I have it just right. Everybody always asks for another slice!
