Servings 5 loaves


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp table salt
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • cup of vegetable oil
  • cups of fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup granulated sugar for the tops


  • Liberally grease 5-6 mini loaf pans. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk to combine and set aside.
  • Add the milk, eggs, and oil together in a large measuring cup, whisk to combine, and then pour it into the dry ingredient mixture.
  • Fold the wet and dry ingredients until just moistened.
  • Divide the batter between the prepared loaf pans, filling ¾ full.
  • Add fresh cranberries to the top and then sprinkle with about ¼ cup of the sugar (divided between all of the loaves)
  • Bake for approx 40 minutes or until the toothpick test comes out clean.
  • One done, remove and sprinkle with remaining sugar and allow to cool to room temperature before removing from the pan.


*Since all ovens bake differently and altitude and humidity levels where you live can have an effect on baking times - the 40 minute suggested time is approximate.
*The number of loaves is between 5-6 since not all mini loaf pans are exactly the same size.
