Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, and mix in bananas, cranberry sauce, milk, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gradually blend flour mixture into the banana mixture. Fold in walnuts. Pour into the prepared loaf pans.
  3. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack, and cool completely.

I used a can of whole berry cranberry sauce, no shortening, 3 T of dry milk powder (in place of liquid milk), and only 1 cup of sugar. It is now my family's favorite banana bread recipe, even beating out the cocoa chocolate chip banana bread.

This was GREAT! Made it for our Mother's Day get together. I never use shortening and always sub it with sour cream, I also used a whole can of whole cranberry sauce. I also made one loaf with nuts, the other without. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I will make this again!

EXCELLENT base recipe. Thanks for the start! bananas and cranberries -- what an awesome combination! The result is a kind of "spice bread." I think that the nutmeg is key!! Here's my healthier version. Note: bananas -- Using VERY RIPE ones, and more of them, gives the moisture AND sweetness. Banana Cranberry Bread 2 1/2 c. sugar --> reduce to 3/4 c. sugar 1 c. shortening -- eliminate this entirely 3 eggs 3 mashed bananas --> increase to 10 VERY RIPE (brown) mashed bananas 1 c. cranberry sauce --> substitute 1 bag = 12 oz. whole cranberries instead 1 orange, peeled and mashed -- ADD this 1/2 cup milk 1 t. vanilla extract 4 c. all-purpose flour --> substitute 3 c. self-rising flour 1 1/2 t. baking soda 1 1/2 t. baking powder 1 t. ground cinnamon 1/2 t. ground nutmeg --> increase to 1 t. ground nutmeg 1/2 c. chopped walnuts 2 loaf pans (9x5") --> 3 loaf pans 350 for 50--60 m --> 40 m (less cooking time means more moistness)
