Cranberry Apple Bread


This apple cranberry bread is a holiday favorite in our family. It's very festive and a wonderful breakfast bread for Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. I like to prepare the bread batter ahead of time and thaw it the night before serving it. Just pop it in the oven in the morning, and you'll have fresh breakfast bread. Enjoy!
