Need a quick gift?

Try these....
Yummy little loaves filled with love!

 They are easy to make and delicious to eat...

 Cranberry-Pineapple-Nut Bread

That is if you don't eat all the batter....
I know...I has raw eggs...but sometimes...well...

I made 16 15 sweet gifts in a snap...yes I ate one!

And I made a medium sized loaf and sent it to my mom & dad in California!
All from this one batch!

Here's the recipe:
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 oz bag cranberries – put in the food processor for just a whirl to chop
  • 1 cup (8 oz can) crushed pineapple – drained
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp each:  cinnamon,  ginger, nutmegor use allspice
  • *You can add 3/4 cup raisins if you like...I used walnuts instead
Preheat oven to 350 F.  Prepare loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray
Beat the eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla for about 3 minutes.   Stir in the chopped cranberries and the crushed pineapple.
Sift the flour, baking soda, powder, salt and the spices and stir JUST TO COMBINE – DON’T OVER MIX into the eggs/fruit mixture. 
Pour into the prepared pans and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Stay Cozy,

Now those do look fantastic sweetie.

Yep, I'm one to throw caution to the wind and lick the bowl. Heck, I love cookie dough waaaay more than cookies anyway! 'Just sayin'....

God bless and have a most beautifully bright Christmas surrounded by the ones you hold near and dear!!! :o)

Carrie, these sound and look delicious! YUM! And I love the multi-loaf pans that allow you to cook them all in one go. I haven't gotten as many cookies baked this year, and these look like they would make the perfect little gift for my neighbors! Thanks for the wonderful idea!

Hi Carrie,

The little loaves look great - I have some of the little mini loaf tins, so must try this.
Hope that you have had a merry Christmas and now I wish you a year ahead, filled with happy days.
