Winter is quite possibly my favorite time of the year. The chill lacing the air, the slow drizzle pouring outside makes me super nostalgic. And there is no better way to treat nostalgia than in the kitchen. A lover of quick breads mixed with fruits, I had to use up the cranberries I had stored in my freezer from last year when I bought two bags of fresh cranberries that go on sale during thanksgiving time. On the packet, it said “buy two, freeze one.” So I bought two, froze one. I didn’t quite think that I would just leave it in the freezer for a year. But point being, it worked. I froze it, then used it. A full 365 days later. I’m sure you’ve done that too.

Cranberry Nut Bread

The bread comes together in literally no time. It keeps well for a few days and is really moist. Just be sure to let it rest for a few hours before slicing because the moisture releases slowly. I always bake it at night and slice it in the morning. If you slice it two seconds after it comes out of the oven, expect it to crumble on you and be dry. Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you.

Cranberry Nut Bread

Quick breads are my fav! If you like em too, this should be on your hit list. It's sweet and zesty and slightly tart and goes really well with that cuppa joe!
