Cranberry Banana Bread

Cranberry Banana Bread

-from my friend, Giuli Krug

This recipe was given to me about 10 years ago from a friend. I made it on a whim on a snow day (pre-kids! can you imagine the glory of a snow day at home alone with no kids?!!?) and I've made it every year since. It's a nice change from traditional banana bread adaptations. For Thanksgiving this year, I actually made these into muffins because the batter was ready and both my bread pans were occupied with chocolate chip pumpkin bread. That was poor planning. Did you know you can make muffins with most any quick bread recipe you have? Just bake for a shorter period of time. I made these on Monday, popped them into the freezer, and then set them out Thanksgiving night. On Friday morning we had some yummy muffins with breakfast!

1/4 cup melted butter

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

3 mashed bananas

1 cup chopped cranberries

1 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 t. baking powder

1/2 t. baking soda

1/2 t. salt

1/2. t. cinnamon

Cranberry Banana Bread

Combine butter, sugar, and 1 egg. Beat until smooth, then beat in second egg (pretty sure you could add both eggs at once, but the instructions amuse me, so I am passing them on to you). Stir in bananas and cranberries. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add all at once to the wet mixture. Stir until moist. Bake at 350 for 1 hour (in a well-greased 9x5 loaf pan), or divide batter into a dozen muffin tins and bake 20-22 min. 

I do what I do because I love it.  The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life.  That's why I work in two different worlds.  

As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of.  Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.

As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs.  We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.  

I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy.  Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.

Let's dream together.
