COOK TIME

Cranberry and chocolate seem like the perfect romantic pairing of red fruit and decadent chocolate, so enjoy our easy recipe for Cranberry Chocolate Bread!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1/4 cup chocolate flavor syrup
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup (3 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 8- x 4-inch loaf pans with cooking spray (see Note).
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking powder. With an electric beater, beat in shortening until smooth. Stir in eggs, cranberry juice, and chocolate syrup until thoroughly combined. Fold in cranberries, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pans.
     
  3. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan then cool completely on a wire rack.

 

Note

If you prefer, bake this in round or heart-shaped baking dishes. Just remember, those may take an extra 5 to 10 minutes of baking time. Since this makes two loaves, you can enjoy one now and freeze one for a second chance to enjoy these great flavors.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Did not like it with the chocolate syrup. Better flavor without it. Did not change the consistency or texture of the bread by leaving it out.
