How I make my Almond cranberry bread
|3/4 cup||Granulated sugar|
|½ cup||Brown sugar|
|1 ½ tsps.||Baking soda|
|½ cup||Butter or margarine|
|1 ½ cups||Applesauce|
|1/2 tsp||vanilla extract|
|¾ cup||dried cranberries|
|3/4 cup||split almond|
|1/2 cup||powered sugar, sifted|
Combine flour, granulated sugar and brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, vanilla extract and nutmeg in a mixing bowl. Add butter and applesauce. Beat the mixture for no more than two minutes with an electric mixer set to low speed; be sure to scrape down the side of the bowl. Add eggs and beat for two minutes. Stir in fruits and nuts. Pour batter into a greased and floured nine-inch loaf pan. Bake bread at 350*F for 1 1/2 hours or until done. Cool slightly before removing from pan — dust the warm loaf with powdered sugar. Serve warm.
