Cranberry Buttermilk Loaf

Today is my day off and I have a list of things to do, but do not feel like doing any of them. Perhaps the weather is getting the best of me. I would rather sit at home curled up and read a book and if you know me that is not my norm, as staying still for too long drives me crazy. I will try and put some energy into cooking this afternoon as I need to make some dishes for a BBQ and for Superbowl, as well as have some African inspired dishes I'd like to try making soon. I started this mo rning by making a cranberry buttermilk loaf, which is a nice change from banana loaf. The buttermilk keeps it moist and light, and the cranberries provide a nice tart flavor. You could add almonds if desired to give it a crunch texture or even add ground up flaxseed. It is delicious with my morning coffee.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cardamom
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 T melted butter
1 egg
1 cup fresh/frozen cranberries whole

Mix together flour, baking soda, powder, salt and spices. In a seperate bowl whisk together the sugars, buttermilk, butter, vanilla and egg. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet and add cranberries after that.

Spoon (too thick to pour) into greased loaf pan and bake in a preheated oven at 375 for 50-60 minutes.

Caught red handed!

Great looking loaf and it tastes great with a coffee. But I really think that you should reconsider your hand model...

This looks very much like some buttermilk and blueberry muffins I made recently. It looks really tasty and lovely and soft.

Love the caught red handed play on words. Go figure - I just cooked off the rest of my fresh cranberries. I wonder if I could still salvage and recreate this loaf with a crunchy cranberry sauce. What's the worst that'll happen - it'll all be red and then I'll get caught red handed .hahahaha
