This 5 minute cranberry bread is yet another adaptation of my favorite sweet bread recipe. It’s a beautiful and festive way to celebrate the holidays, especially for gifting.
As you have probably already read in previous posts, I always stock up on white ceramic loaf pans at Michael’s this time of year when they’re 50% off, making them just $1 a piece. They wrap easily with (optional cellophane and) a bow – a true no fuss homemade gift.
I love easy quick bread recipes because they’re great for entertaining – even last minute. They’re not only foolproof, but quick to make (just 5 minutes) using staple ingredients I already have on hand including sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk, oil and cranberries, of course!
This Cranberry Bread makes a delicious breakfast served with or without butter, snack or dessert. As I mentioned before, it also makes a great gift! Yielding 6 miniature loaves (or 1 large loaf) it’s great for that one for you, one for me mentality. Actually, 5 to gift and one to enjoy at home!

How to Make Cranberry Bread
5 Minute Cranberry Bread
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine sugar, flour, baking powder & salt. Set aside.
- Beat eggs, milk & oil.
- Gradually add dry mixture to wet until just moist.
- Grease 6 miniature baking dishes & pour mixture an inch below to the top to compensate for rise.
- Sprinkle with cranberries and sugar. Bake 40 minutes.
You can use a standard loaf pan, just increase bake time and use toothpick to test. When it comes out clean, the bread is ready to remove from the oven.
Optional: Add orange zest and pecans or walnuts.
