Cranberry Nut Bread I
This is my first time making cranberry bread, and I read the reviews before trying it myself. I noted that several people said this recipe made the bread very dry, so I added 1/3 cup of sour cream to the mix as well as a teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 tsp nutmeg for flavor. I reduced the cranberries to 1 cup and increased the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I also sliced and smashed the cranberries before adding them. I must agree that it is much better after it has cooled. If you try it when it's warm, the cranberries do over power the flavor of the bread. We chilled it before eating it, and it turned out absolutely wonderful! My husband and my son both love it, so I will definitely be making this for our Thanksgiving family get-together.
The only thing I would do differently next time is add some melted butter to the top of the loaf while it's baking because the crust did come out pretty hard, which I usually like, but it was a little tough to bite into the corners. Otherwise, I'm really glad I found this recipe!
