This Cranberry Loaf Cake is wonderful for the Christmas holidays. I make this cake often as it is good anytime of the year and you can substitute different fruits and berries. It keeps well for several days in a cool place. I just put it under a cake cover and it never lasts long at my house. We love this with our morning coffee and cranberries are so good for you. Dust with powdered sugar or add the glaze for a real treat to serve family and friends. These make great gifts, too.

 

 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, softened
1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped fresh cranberries
1 cup chopped nuts, pecans or walnuts

    I am going to make this, but I always use Gold Medal Self Rising Flour. It never fails me. I am going to put some of the cranberries in with the icing drizzle for color and extra taste. Merry Christmas.

  2. Could you use dehydrated cranberrys in this recipe?? fresh are difficult in this area in the winter.

  3. I would definitely enjoy this as cranberries are a MUST HAVE this time of year. Looks mighty fine. Pinning! Thanks for sharing. A very merry Christmas to you and yours.

  4. Would like ideas of how to wrap to make it gift worthy. . . ..

      I would just put it in one of those Christmas tins and line the tin with foil. That is the way I do mine. Hope this helps. I have not tried shipping it anywhere so cannot tell you about that. I would not put the glaze on if I were to freeze it or wrap the cake entirely in foil.

We enjoy your comments but due to the large volume we must delete comments often. We try to do this weekly and sometimes more often. Positive comments about a recipe you tried and loved are always welcome. Thank you so much for commenting here.
