Cream Cheese Cranberry Bread

You might have some extra cranberries sitting around after the holidays and I have the perfect way to use them up. We use fresh cranberries to make this cream cheese cranberry loaf and I am going to show you just how easy it is to make. I created a video, if you want to see the recipe in action. This recipe makes a large loaf and takes about 20 minutes to prep and then an hour in the oven.
