Cream Cheese Cranberry Bread

Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious Cream Cheese Cranberry Bread that would be perfect for a brunch during the Holidays.  This would also make a perfect gift for a neighbor or co-worker. 


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.  

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Slowly mix the flour mixture into the wet batter until combined. Fold in the cranberries and nuts.

Fill greased loaf pan.  (I actually filled the 9x5" loaf pan and 2 additional mini loaf pans - this makes a lot of batter.)

Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes for the large loaf and 25-30 minutes for the mini loaves.
