A great find from a Taste of Home booklet. Recipe originally submitted by H. Naylor. Love the flavors of the cranberry sauce and blueberries. A nice take on a berry bread.

Wonderful recipe. This will be my go to recipe for leftover wholeberry cranberry sauce from now on. I added one teaspoon of vanilla to the batter and ended up with enough for six miniature loaves. They took approximately 35 minutes to bake into beautiful loaves. They rose quite high so would hesitate to fill the pans more than 3/4 full. My intent was to freeze half of the loaves but they didn't make it to the freezer. they were that good!
