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.
