apple bread a couple of months ago, I thought it would be great with some cranberries and maybe even some walnuts. Well, I took a leap of faith and made this Apple Cranberry & Walnut Torta for my Thanksgiving dinner and I was very disappointed. I know I shouldn't have tried it out for company, but it was from Giada and had hundreds of good reviews. I found it to be not sweet enough at all for a dessert and there sure were a lot... including soaking the cranberries in Gran Marnier, which is not a cheap ingredient. I will go to quite a bit of trouble for something amazing, but for extra steps like this to get sub par results just was not working for me. I decided to take my tried and true apple bread recipe and simply add cranberries. It turned out great. Next on the list is to add some walnuts, but all that to say, you should add some of your favorite ingredients in here to spice it up.
Cranberry Apple Bread
We were joined with a new coworker in our office last week so I made this for everyone. Because the cranberries were an experiment, I only made one loaf with cranberries. I simply added them in after I had split the batter.
