Instructions

  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.
