Cranberry Bread ala Mochi and Pumpkin ~ Updated

Not only are there tons of pumpkin treats to make and eat but lets not forget my favorite... the Cranberry!


I had this bread at a recent party and the hostess was kind enough to pass it along which she got from another hostess.  Thinking about calling it Hostess bread, what do ya think?!?!  This is super easy that Pumpkin helped out today so some of the photos maybe a bit fuzzy.  There was flying flour, smashed eggs, and bouncing cranberries but we had fun and she can not wait to share this treat with her sisters with a big dollop of whipped cream to boot ;)

So here is our Cranberry Bread {Hostess Bread} Adventure ~

Beat together 3 eggs and 2 cups of sugar for about 5 minutes { until slightly thick and lighter in color}

Add 3/4 cup of softened butter and 1 tsp of orange extract {original called for Almond}.  Beat for 2 minutes.

Stir in 2 cups of flour and 1 tsp of salt till just combined

Fold in 2 cups of fresh cranberries

After waiting for 45-50 minutes out of the 350 oven comes your nummy bread ;)

Now I will have to see if I can keep Pumpkin away from the bread till her sisters come home from school ;)  We hope you enjoy !

Cranberry Bread {Hostess Bread}
3 eggs
2 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
1 tsp orange extract { almond in origninal}
1 tsp. salt
2 c. flour
2 1/2 c. fresh cranberry {Pumpkin decided 2 was enough}
2/3 chopped pecans {omitted due to allergies to tree nuts}
sugar to sprinkle on top

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs with sugar until slightly thickened and lighter color { about 5 minutes}.  Add butter and extract, beat 2 minutes.  Stir in flour and salt until just combined.  Fold in cranberries and pecans.  Spread in greased 13x 9 { had to cook a bit longer } pan.  Sprinkle with sugar on top.  Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.  Serve with whipped cream.
