Cranberry Cream Cheese Loaf Recipe


Happy New Year everyone! One thing I told myself was that this year I was going to make it a point to bake more. I love to bake I find it really relaxing! Anyone else?? During the winter time I like to use ingredients like cranberries, cinnamon and marshmallows.


Today I’m sharing with a recipe that I love to use with left over fresh cranberries from the holidays. This recipe is easy to make but takes a bit more time in the oven but trust me it’s delicious. Especially with a nice cup of tea or coffee in the morning.
