Cranberry Pecan Banana Bread

It’s that time of the season….time to get started on my Christmas Baking…what little I bake. My first recipe is a Cranberry Pecan Banana Bread. Easy to make, easy to freeze, easy to serve when needed.


  • 1 stick salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup whole pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed

Preheat your oven to 350 and generously butter a loaf pan.

In a large bowl combine the butter and sugar until well mixed. Sift in the salt, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves. Using a food processor, pulse the fresh cranberries and pecans until they are roughly chopped. Add these to the bowl. Add the vanilla, eggs and bananas and stir all the ingredients until just blended. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool for 15 to 20 minutes before removing from the loaf pan.

Suggestions: Try drizzling my homemade Cranberry Icing over slices of this bread at your next Christmas Party. (Cranberry Icing recipe will be posted at a later date)
