Ingredients:

Bread

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg , lightly beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter , melted
  • 1 ½ cups fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

Crumble topping (optional):

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 TB cold butter , cubed
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  3. Add the milk and egg to the dry mixture. Stir until everything is just moist and add the butter. Stir until combined, but do not over-mix. Fold in the cranberries and nuts.
  4. For the crumble topping, combine all the ingredients. Work the mixture with your hands, squeezing and stirring until it’s all moist and crumbly.
  5. Grease a 9 ½” x 5 ½” pan — you can put all the batter in one pan to make one loaf, but I’ve divided it in two pans so I can freeze one loaf for later. Sprinkle the crumble topping on the loaf.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Check for doneness and turn. Bake for 15 more minutes or until the top is browned and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. It’s delicious served with a pat of butter and a cup of coffee or tea.

  1. Use TWO pans! Batter will overflow just one. Otherwise it’s very good.

  2. Sounds and looks good. Thank you.
