Apple cranberry bread is so good served with coffee or as a snack just anytime or make it for Christmas.   The cranberries and nuts give it a nutty, fruity flavor that makes you want to come back for more. A great gift during the Christmas holidays, too!

Apple Cranberry Bread

2 eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup of butter, melted

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

2 cups apples, peeled and chopped (I used 3 apples)

1 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup water

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)

Topping:

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of allspice

1 cup of chopped pecans

In a large bowl whisk together eggs, sugar and butter.  In a smaller bowl pour the 1/3 cup water over the cranberries and let them soak up the water for about ten minutes while you peel and chop the apples.  Combine the cranberries (drain off any water that wasn’t soaked up) and apples with the butter, eggs and sugar and whisk well.  Add all the remaining ingredients and mix with a large spoon.  Pour into a sprayed loaf pan. Mix topping ingredients together and sprinkle over the top. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes. Enjoy!
