Love it! Cranberry banana loaf

 
There’s nothing we love more than a slice of chocolate chip banana bread. But when it comes to the holidays, we’ve gotta face reality: cranberries are just so much more festive! Add a tart surprise to your cake-like fave for a treat that’s oh-so worthy of anything from a breakfast bite to a family bash.

 

Ingredients:

1 package of white cake mix

4 oz cream cheese, softened      

1 egg 

1 1⁄2 cups mashed ripe bananas (3 to 4 large bananas)

1 1⁄2 cups fresh cranberries

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixer bowl, combine cake mix, cream cheese, egg and bananas. Beat on low speed until smoothly blended, about 2 minutes. Batter will be stiff. Fold in cranberries. Spread batter into two greased and floured 8 1/2-inch by 4 1/2-inch loaf pans, dividing evenly. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes in pans on a wire rack, then remove loaves and cool completely.
