This tea bread makes a great breakfast when you've got weekend house guests. If you like a nuttier taste, substitute un-toasted walnut oil for the canola oil.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine both flours, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat sugar and oil with an electric mixer at medium speed until sugar begins to dissolve, about 2 minutes.
  4. Beat in eggs; beat in mashed bananas. Scrape down sides of bowl and remove beaters; stir in flour mixture and cranberries with a rubber spatula, making sure you scrape down sides of bowl to moisten everything.
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan; smooth top. Baked until browned (a toothpick inserted into center of bread should come out with a few moist crumbs), about 45 minutes. Place pan on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes; then turn loaf out of pan to continue cooling on rack. Slice loaf into 3/4-inch-thick pieces.
  6. Once completely cooled, the loaf can be stored at room temperature, wrapped in plastic wrap.
