Have cooked variations on this most weeks since I found the recipe at Christmas. Blueberry and cranberry with a few tablespoons of fruit juice to replace the liquid from the apples was my favourite; blueberry and apple voted "best cake ever" by my husband To keep the calories down, have been omitting the nuts and using less sugar (dark brown - 75g with cranberries, 60g with sweeter fruit). Moist but light snack. Highly recommended.-22 Jan 2013

Made this and used leftover home-made cranberry sauce and used ground almonds instead of walnuts. worked great!-03 Jan 2016

found 250gs of apple too much, might reduce and went with only 75g of sugar, which was more than enough as the apples were sweet. loaf came out slightly burnt at 35, might look at 30 only. loaf was dry and hard, will add another egg.-02 May 2013

Cranberry-Apple-Nut Bread Breakfast Recipe

I am so glad that I came across this Cranberry-Apple-Nut Bread recipe. Every week I look at the cranberry bakery bread in the Publix ad, but I cannot bring myself to pay almost $5 for it!

This worked out perfectly because Craisins were B1G1 this week. I had apple leftover from the Apple Dumplings, and the rest I consider staples. I made mine in mini loaf pans, so it's a portable breakfast this week. This would make a great gift bread also.

The cranberries would be festive for Valentine's Day. Another excellent idea for your child's teacher! Hint. my Mom would love this for those of you who have Mrs. Sumlin for your kindergarten teacher! This is quick, easy, and delicious. Mix it all up in one bowl and bake. Yummy!


Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda set aside.

Mix apples, sugar and margarine in large bowl. Add egg product mix well.

Add flour mixture stir just until moistened. (Batter will be thick.) gently stir in cranberries and walnuts.

Spread the batter into greased 8x4-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hr or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Let stand in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

Cranberry Apple Nut Bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients including all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, flaxseeds, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and honey.

Then, add Biotta Mountain Cranberry juice, buttermilk, coconut oil, vanilla, and orange zest. (These are the "wet" ingredients.)

Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until there are no more large lumps.

Mix only until combined. Overmixing results in a tougher textured bread.

Carefully fold in the apple, dried cranberries, and nuts (if using).

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and lightly spread to smooth top.

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, rotating pan half way through to ensure even browning.

Test doneness by poking the center of the bread with a toothpick.

If it comes out clean, the bread is done. Allow bread to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.

Slice and serve with butter and a drizzle of honey.

This bread stores well, covered, at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Note: To make your own buttermilk, simply stir in 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to 1/3 cup milk and let it sit for 5 minutes.

Individual bread puddings make for elegant presentation

For a sophisticated touch, serve this dessert in individual portions, as shown above. But if that feels too daunting, you can also bake your bread pudding in a single dish and serve it family style. Either way, I promise, everyone will be scraping their plates and licking their spoons!

Food & wine pairing: Canada, Icewine with apple-cranberry bread puddings

If you make this dessert for a dinner party or a special occasion, then serving a dessert wine with it would be totally appropriate. Try an Icewine from Canada or Germany (spelled Eiswein), or a sweet Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley. Both would be stunning with these bread puddings.

Cranberry Bread Recipes

Cranberries add beautiful color and tartness to breads. Cranberry breads such as the Cranberry Walnut Celebration Bread (pictured below) make a beautiful presentation for any special occasion.

Cranberry Walnut Celebration Bread

Apple Almond Cranberry Bread

To make this bread you will need 1 apple, some blanched almonds and dried cranberries (I got mine from Trader Joes). Dice up the apple so the pieces are about the same size as the cranberries. Honeycrisp apples are always my go-to for baking but I am going to try out some different apple varieties for Thanksgiving &ndash I will update accordingly.

I modified a basic quick bread recipe from Baker Bettie &ndash you should really check it out if you get a chance. It is the best explanation I have ever seen for baking quick bread.

As anyone made this in a bundt pan stead of 2 loaf pans. I am going to try it, sounds so good

I love Amish-inspired recipes like this delicious apple bread!

What do you consider a "regular loaf pan"? I prefer a 4X8 pan but a lot of sweet bread recipes call or 9X5.

OK YUM! This dessert looks so scrumptious. The best part about this recipe is it looks super easy to make. I'm no chef, so I am always looking for easy and quick recipes to make. I am totally making this in the fall time.

I love apple cake, and I still use a recipe my father gave to me. This sounds really good and very similar to an apple bread produced by a local bakery. I'd definitely add a cup of chopped walnuts to this since the walnuts are a great compliment to banana bread, and I'm sure it would do the same for this. It's a very simple recipe, and I'm looking forward to trying this soon.

This apple bread seems to fall somewhere between bread and cake. It is similar to the recipe I use for making banana bread, the dough of which also ends up being quite thick and not easy to pour, but still not as thick as bread dough. After baking, the texture is really nice, again somewhere between the texture of bread and cake. Quite delicious!

Hmmmm this looks heavenly. It reminds me of the time I spent in Germany as an exchange student. I was given "Apfelkuchen" for breakfast and thought they were crazy eating "cake" for breakfast. I got used to it and then missed it when I went back to eating cereal in the mornings. I think I am going to make this for a trip down memory lane!

Yum, apple bread sounds like a great idea! I would definitely eat this all year long.

The batter was incredibly thick. Baked for 1hr. Would have been ruined had it baked any longer. Tastes, OK.

Didn,t know the formula of your eating ,for what time ,hat only?Or is that food too?

I just mixed the batter up for this recipe and was very concerned by how thick it is. Is the batter supposed to be so thick it isn't pourable? I added a individual sized container of Greek yougurt. It is still baking as it wasn't done after an hour. I had lots of apples I need to use and would love to make more of this recipe so please let me know about the batter please.

The batter will be thick, but you should still be able to pour it. You may need to bake it for more than 1 1/2 hours. We have updated the recipe to indicate this. Greek yogurt was not used in the original recipe. If you use it, you may need to bake it longer. Thank you!

G'day Just noticed in the recipe it says soda. "Sift flour, cinnamon, soda, and salt." Was I supposed to add soda? If so, what kind and how much?

The soda referred to baking soda. We updated the recipe to make that clearer. Thanks!

Thanks for submitting your photo of the Amish Apple Bread. It looks great!

G'day! I LOVED this Amish Apple bread and could not believe it made two loaves that came out perfectly! I adapted the recipe using xylitol (sugarless sugar to make it a lot healthier and to suit my food lifestyle) and blogged about the experience, photo and history which I will be sharing via social media too! A definite keeper recipe this is Thank you! I oiled sprayed the loaf pans and allowed the to slightly cooled before removing to wire racks. Cheers! Joanne @What's On The List

This is so deliciously moist!! Real easy to put together with everything already in your pantry. The only problem I had was getting it out of the pan. do you have ant suggestions so it comes out in one piece? Thanks for your super recipes.

Thank you for your comment. There is a print button below the recipe title that will enable you to print.

Absolutely delicious. For a moment (or two, or seven. ) I thought I was eating cake, but lo and behold it was in fact this delightful apple bread. I'll certainly make another loaf this week.

This bread was incredibly moist and full of fall flavor! I might add a streusel topping of cinnamon, brown sugar and butter next time - just to make it an extra special treat.

Loved it! Delicious and easy!

So you don't add the 2 cups of sugar with the dry ingredients? You sprinkle it over the cake? Doesn't make since.

Made this bread to use up some apples I had left over from a pie I had made. I left out the nuts (didn't feel like chopping them) some days are just lazy days, that was one. The bread was still wonderful and moist. The recipe is a keeper.

it is s delicious tea bread for these chilly days. THANK YOU
