1 loaf


  • 1 ⅓ cup sugar

  • ½ cup finely chopped toasted pecans or walnuts

  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup milk

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 1 cup coarsely chopped cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a small bowl stir together 1/3 cup of the sugar, the pecans, and cinnamon; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl stir together the remaining 1 cup sugar, the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl beat egg with a fork; stir in milk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in cranberries.

  3. Spoon half of the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of the pecan mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon mixture. Using a thin metal spatula or table knife, cut down through batter and pull up in a circular motion to marble the cinnamon mixture.

  4. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing.
