Minnie’s Banana Cranberry Bread

By: Just Minnie

With its super-moist texture, buttery banana, cranberry and brown sugar flavors, and incredibly soft crumb, this is my favorite banana cranberry bread recipe.


3-4 bananas, Large Ripe

1/3 cup of Cranberries


2 Eggs, Large

Baking & Spices:

2 cups All-Purpose Flour

1 tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1 cup Granulated Sugar

1/2 cup Brown Sugar

1/2 tsp.  Salt

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract


1 Stick Butter


This recipe makes one loaf of banana bread.  The first step is to preheat your oven and prepare a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or grease with butter.

Take a large bowl and whisk together your dry ingredients.  This will include flour, sugars, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl melt your butter in the microwave, then add in the bananas and mash until mostly smooth.

Add your eggs and vanilla to your mashed banana and cranberries and use your fork to combine everything really well.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together with a spatula just until combined.  Don’t overmix.

Now, you are ready to pour your batter into your prepared pan and bake!


For this recipe, you will use a standard size of about 9×5 inch loaf pan for one loaf of bread.  Alternately, you can use a standard-sized muffin tin and bake for around 25-30 minutes.
