Cranberry Bread

CranberryBread   “This is another oldie but goodie recipe. My Aunt Gloria used to make this often and I loved it.  To me, it is the best cranberry bread recipe and I have tried many others!  This recipe will make three mini loaves if you prefer.  Just adjust your baking time shorter.  Enjoy!”
