Apple Pie Quick Bread with Cranberries

This is based on my traditional quick bread recipe. I had half of a container of apple pie filling left and decided to dump it into some batter. The result was extraordinary! I will be making this as gifts for sure!


2 eggs
3/4 cups of sugar
1/3 cup of canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups apple pie filling*
3/4 cup of dried cranberries
1/2 tsp cinnamon, optional

Preheat oven to 375

In the bowl of your mixer beat together eggs, sugar and oil until pale yellow and fluffy. Add vanilla and baking powder and gradually add in the flour. When all is well mixed (mixture will seem dry - not to worry) add the apple pie filling* and cinnamon if desired. A chunky cinnamon flavored apple sauce might be a very good substitute. Mix well, add cranberries, mix well.

Into a pre-greased bread loaf add the batter.
Bake for approximately 1 hour.

The inside will be soft and moist!
