Making the Bread Recipe
This delicious cranberry bread recipe is best with fresh or frozen cranberries, but you can try dried cranberries (or crasins) will work, too. We personally use fresh ones to make this fresh cranberry bread recipe.
1 Gather all ingredients together and let the butter and eggs reach room temperature.
2 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3 Grease a 9×5-in bread loaf pan.
4 Put the butter, sugar and cream cheese in the mixer bowl until they’re creamy.
5 Slowly, add the vanilla extract while the mixer is going.
6 With the mixer still on, add one egg at a time into the bowl.
7 In another bowl, mix the gluten free flour, the baking powder and the optional salt with a fork or whisk.
8 Slowly, add the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients until they are completely mixed.
9 Fold in cranberries into the batter.
10 Pour the batter into the bread pan. Sprinkle cranberries and sliced almonds on top of the batter.
11 Bake the cranberry loaf of bread for about 60 minutes.
12 Check it regularly. The top should be golden brown and a toothpick should come out clean.
13 Take it out of the oven. Turn the oven off. Let the bread cool for about 15 minutes.
14 Enjoy your cranberry bread with fresh cranberries and almonds! We like to slice it while still warm and slather some butter on top.
