Cranberry Walnut Bread

Cranberry Walnut Bread

WebMD Recipe

We love the texture and flavor of this bread. Some people prefer tart cranberries in this bread while others might want to toss their cranberries in a couple tablespoons of sugar before stirring them into the batter. In the off-season, you can even make this bread with dried cranberries.
