This is an awesome recipe that makes 2 loaves at one time so you have one to keep and one to give away. The tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of the other ingredients makes for a moist, delicious loaf.
1 cup butter
1 8oz pkg of cream cheese
1-1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups of flour
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups of cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly mix into wet batter until combined. Fold in cranberries and pecans.
Pour into two greased 9×5 loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes or 4 mini loaves for 40 minutes. Enjoy!
