Author Notes: Left with cranberry sauce after the holidays and determined to not waste it, I wanted to bake something that would incorporate the delicious sauce. This loaf takes about 5 minutes to prepare and is perfect as a quick breakfast, a healthy dessert, or an afternoon pick-me-up. Monica

Makes: 1 loaf

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups rye or spelt flour (I used half-and-half, but use all rye if gluten free)
  • 1.5 cups cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup cranberry sauce (for spreading on top)
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, except for the ½ cup cranberry sauce
  3. Transfer mixture into a loaf pan
  4. Spread remaining ½ cup cranberry sauce on top (it doesn’t spread that great on the batter, but just roughly spread it a bit - it will come out just fine!)
  5. Bake at 325 F for 60-90 minutes, or until knife comes out clean
