Banana Apple and Cranberry Loaf

Banana Apple and Cranberry Loaf

What’s good with banana cake or loaf is that it’s so versatile you can add different flavours to this wonderful base and this is one of the best variations that I had tried the Banana, Apple and Cranberry Loaf.  It was made by my missus adapted from the recipe of my sister-in-law and the result was phenomenal, a moist and fruity banana loaf.

  2. Bummer there is a rarity of dried cranberry (or fresh cranberry for that matter) here in the Philippines 🙁

    Any recommended substitutes 😀 ?
