Cream Cheese Cranberry Bread Recipe


  • 1 c. butter softened
  • 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 c. cranberries fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 c. chopped pecans optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. In another bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt. Slowly mix into wet batter until combined. Fold in cranberries and nuts.
  4. One or two greased 9 in. x 5 in. loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes if using two loaf pans. If using one loaf pan bake for about 90 minutes. You can also use 4 mini loaf pans for 40 minutes.

NotesThere are many comments about this not baking through etc. I have retested the recipe and it will bake through in one 9×5 loaf pan, but you can also use two if you’d like. Adjust baking time to about 50-60 minutes. It also works great in four mini loaf pans!Base Recipe adapted from site
