Cranberry Cream Cheese Bread

February 13, 2017

This sweet treat is a crowd pleaser. I baked it as a thank you for some coworkers, and the whole loaf was almost gone in the first few minutes.

You will need:

  • 1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 pkg (8 oz) light cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 t baking soda
  • 2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 2 c cranberries, fresh or frozen

Then you will…

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two 9×5 loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter with the cream cheese and sugar.
  3. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Mix in the baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  5. Mix in the flour just until combined.
  6. Gently fold in the cranberries.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans.
  8. Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until golden and a tester inserted in center comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool at least 15 minutes before flipping out onto a wire rack to continue cooling.
