Are you craving something sweet and fruity? Have a bite of my Orange Glazed Cranberry Banana Bread. Whew! that’s a mouthful! A delicious, sweet and fruity, mouthful of awesome! Yeah! Light and fluffy this bread is fit for any occasion. Have it for breakfast with coffee, or save it for dessert with a scoop of homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.  This bread is guaranteed to warm over your heart and your family. This recipe  makes two loaves so, one of the loaves you can leave out the cranberries if you like and use something else.  I like to make one plain loaf with a Peanut Butter Icing.

Cranberry Banana Bread:

6 very ripe bananas

2 sticks salted butter softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 Tbsp Vanilla extract

2 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 cup Buttermilk

3 eggs

3/4 cup dried cranberries, or figs, dates, raisins, etc.

Orange Glaze:

1 Orange

2 cups Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Start by mixing butter, sugar, Vanilla, eggs, buttermilk, and mashed bananas together with a wooden spoon.  Then add all your dry ingredients, mix with a wooden spoon.  Break out the electric mixer and mix it until nice a smooth.  Grease two loaf pans. Evenly distribute into pans.  Place loaf pans in the oven and turn down heat after 10 minutes to 325 degrees F.  Let bake for one hour and check the center with a toothpick when it comes out clean they are done.
