Cranberry White Chocolate Quick Bread Mix in a Jar

Recipe by Tinkerbell
READY IN: 1hr 10mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • To make the gift jar: Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and then spoon into a quart-sized jar with a tight-fitting lid. (I use a wide-mouth funnel to easily get the ingredients into the jar.) Tap the jar gently on the counter top to settle the flour.
  • Combine the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and pour over the flour in the jar.
  • Continue the layers with the dried cranberries, then the white chocolate chips and finally the pecans. Put the lid on the jar and decorate as desired.
  • To make bread: Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease a 9x 5 loaf pan.
  • Pour all the dry ingredient from the jar into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, use a fork to beat the eggs lightly and then add the sour cream. Continue mixing with the fork until the sour cream is incorporated.
  • Add the melted butter to the dry ingredients and then add the egg and sour cream mixture. Stir just until combined.
  • Spread into prepared loaf pan and bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
  • Cool 10 minutes in pan and then turn out onto a cooling rack (with a layer of foil or waxed paper under the rack, to keep your counter clean.).
  • Stir together powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle or spread over top of loaf. Serve immediately or cool completely before slicing, to keep the slices looking nice.
