Apple Cranberry Bread with Streusel Topping

Apple cranberry bread | smell of fresh bread from the oven is welcoming in any home, in fact it has been said if you want to sell your home then bake fresh bread in the oven when people come to view your home and your chances of selling are greater. It would probably work for me since I am a sucker for fresh bread. This apple cranberry bread is no exception to the rule of smelling fantastic while baking, it’s a sweet and tart bread that will delight your senses both by smelling and tasting it. I derived this recipe from my apple bread recipe that I shared a few years ago. Β If you haven’t tried the apple bread you really must, it’s a keeper and everyone who tastes it wants the recipe. For this moist apple cranberry bread I didn’t use any cinnamon in the bread or in the streusel, but I think you could easily use cinnamon or nutmeg to add another level of flavor since Β both warm spices goes so well with fruits like apples.

I highly recommend you give this recipe a try this holiday season, it would make a perfect hostesss gift for any party or get together. I hope you enjoy the season and this delicious bread as much as my family does.

I’ve never cooked or baked with fresh cranberries yet although I really love them. This is such a pretty bread with red dots from cranberries peaking from the bread!

Hmmm…thanks for the real estate tip – hehe. That would probably work for me if someone did just that! I love the smell of fresh baked bread. We use to live near a commercial bakery, and every night, the aroma that would waft our way was so inviting! Speaking of inviting, your bread is just that! I love that it has streusel – awesome!
