As I said earlier, Mark and I have been watching “The Great Britain Baking Show,” and have been inspired to try more creative bread baking. This recipe is one of those inspirations.

You can find recipes that use whole cranberries, but this is a great one for using left-over sauce. Ingredients: Loaf: 1/2 c. cranberry sauce (one that has formed […]
