Poppy Seed Cranberry Bread

This is one of our favorite breakfast breads. I don't make it as often as I like because I always seem to run out of poppy seeds, but whenever I remember to buy them, this is my favorite way to use them.

  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2 T. poppy seeds
  • 3 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/3 c. butter, melted
  • 2 t. vanilla or 1 t. almond extract
  • 1/2 c. dried cranberries, diced
1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
2. In a second bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla or almond extract. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the cranberries.
3. Pour batter into a loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes, or until done.

Icing (optional)
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 t. milk
1. Whisk together sugar and milk. Drizzle over cooled bread.

I have made this bread without the cranberries before and it is still delicious.

All of the recipes that you have been posting lately sound so good. It looks like I am going to be making a lot of extra trips to the grocery store this month so I can do some extra baking at home.

This sounds great. Your link was going to the wrong site (Pillsbury Coupon site). I fixed it, and should be linking back to you, now. It has been that kind of day, with Mr. Linky. So glad you keep joining us, for TMTT.

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
