Cranberry Bread with Leftover Cranberry Sauce Recipe
You can substitute any type of fruit jam/preserves, or even use whole fresh fruit in place of the cranberry sauce. But then that defeats the purpose of using leftover cranberry sauce.
serves 6 to 8
- 1½ cups all-purpose flour I actually used half whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup sugar
- ¼ cup butter softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup cup sour cream
- ½ cup cranberry sauce or other fruit jam/preserves
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Lightly spray an 8x4-inch loaf pan with baking spray.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl. Add flour mixture and sour cream alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Spread half the batter into prepared loaf pan. Spoon cranberry sauce over top, leaving a ¼-inch border. Spread remaining batter over cranberry sauce mixture.
Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until wooden stick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove loaf from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
