print recipe


  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) melted butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup + 2-3 Tbsp. sliced almonds
  • 1½ cups frozen whole cranberries
  • 1¼ cups white chips
  • 3 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. milk

cooking methods

  • Bake


Preheat oven to 325°. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; blend well. Do not over mix; batter will be lumpy. Gently stir in 2/3 cup almonds and cranberries, just to combine. Spread batter into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Bake 65-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, and if desired wrap and store overnight before adding glaze (see tip). For glaze: in a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave the white chips until melted and smooth. Stir in powdered sugar and milk. If it is too thick just add a little more milk to get the consistency you prefer. Drizzle bread with the glaze and top with the remaining 2-3 Tbsp. of almonds. Tip: This bread will actually improve in flavor if you bake it the day before. Glaze just before serving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cranberry & almond go PERFECTLY together. I made this for a work food day, it didn't even make it till lunch time, everyone ate it as a mid-morning appetizer! My grocery was out of frozen cranberries so I used fresh, and they worked. This bread/cake is so pretty with the cranberries, and I topped mine with even more almond slices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste!! My husband and I loved it! I followed your recipe and baked it in a glass dish. I just wondered if you used glass or metal when you made yours. Mine turned out more like a crumble, which is fine, as it tasted amazing! I'm just wondering if it was the pan I used. Thank you for sharing this great recipe! I will be making this again. :)
