Since I had the oven on for the beer bread anyway I decided to make another favourite – cranberry bread. This is so sweet it’s more like a cake than a bread but it makes an amazing cheese sandwich
- Half a cup of sugar
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 and a half cups of self raising flour
- 1 small jar of cranberry sauce (about 1 cup)
Mix everything together in a bowl. Pour into a buttered loaf pan. Cook at 175/350 for about an hour. Remove from the tin to cool – although I’m not very good at that part and end up eating it still warm from the oven.
I’m sure you could swap the cranberry for redcurrant or apple sauce and it would still work. I’m also planning on trying this with elderberry once I’ve picked some later in the year.
