Guys, this honey cranberry bread is my new favorite sweet bread! Seriously!

Ok. There are other breads worth mentioning such as banana bread, Irish barmbrack tea cake or this orange loaf cake. They all taste amazing but I tell you that once you taste this one you will fall in love with it!

It’s so good that you will not want to wait until the loaf cools down before tasting it. Well, I could not resist and cut a slice while it was still piping hot. It tasted divine and I was happy but I highly recommend letting the bread cool down first. The texture will set more and it won’t be so crumbly.

Now what I like about this honey cranberry bread the most is the honey part. Honey is a great sweetener and sometimes I wonder why I don’t use it more often in baking. It gives not only sweetness to your baked goods but also flavor, depending of what type of honey you use. One of the reasons I had hard time waiting for this honey cranberry bread to bake was the fact that my whole house smelled like honey!

Making this homemade honey bread is easy. First start off with creaming butter and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Once done, add honey and egg and mix until combined.

Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Don’t forget to sift the flour and baking powder before adding them to the bowl. Now all you have to do is add the milk (I suggest doing this in several stages as it can get messy) and cranberries and mix well.

A 2 lb loaf tin is perfect for this honey cranberry bread. I always line it with baking parchment paper. This is an easy way of making sure the bread will actually come out easily.

It takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes to bake this honey bread. However, every oven is different so you might need to adjust that time. I always check the bread after 1 hour by inserting a wooden skewer in it. If it comes out clean, the bread is ready.

Ready to be served and enjoyed! This honey bread is perfect for breakfast, brunch, afternoon snack or any time you feel like you need a slice of goodness. Spread it with butter or jam (or both) and you will lick your fingers!

By the way, do you know what I love about baking? I love the moment when a cake/pie/muffin/bread or anything really comes out from the oven and it looks perfect. The feeling of success and pride kicks in shortly afterwards. Then there is the tasting part – the moment when you get to taste your homemade product. And finally, there is the sharing part – the moment when you are confident enough to share a few slices of your success with others. What do you like about baking?

    Hi Julia, this looks simply delicious. I, also, enjoy baking and hope to make this soon. But I need to ask before I try this recipe – what do you mean by plain flour? Thanks, Cordelia

    • Julia


      Thank you very much, Cordelia!Let me know what you think when you try! Plain flour is all-purpose flour – sorry about the confusion.I have already updated the recipe.

  • Donna Howard


    Hi Julia, can’t wait to try this. What do you mean by ‘superfine sugar’?? I’m sort of a dunce on baking so I apologize for this question. Thanks!!

    • Julia


      Hi Donna!Superfine sugar has smaller crystals than granulated. It is also known as caster sugar. Hope it helps. Happy Baking!

      • Donna Howard


        Thanks Julia, I’ve never heard of it. I goggled and see there is a way to make your own — just in case I don’t find it today at Target!! I want to make this for a neighbor (she’s 90!) who isn’t a big sweet eater, but loves sweet bread!! Thanks again!

        • Julia


          Donna, you could use granulated sugar, if that’s what you have on hand. It should work well too but. In general you need to add a bit more of granulated. Maybe a tablespoon or two. However I think here you could use just 1 cup of granulated instead. Hope your neighbor will like it!

          • Donna Howard


            Couldn’t find the special sugar so I used 1 cup of regular. My sweet neighbor said it was the best bread she’s ever had!! Thank you. I think now I’ll make some for our missionaries!! I’m on a roll!!

          • Julia Kyselicova


            Donna, I am so delighted to hear that your neighbor loved it! Thanks so much for the feedback!
