Cranberry Streusel Bread

Cranberry Streusel Bread
I have been out of commission this past week. As far as baking goes…it wasn’t a break by choice. I got hit with a stomach bug and it is just now moving on. I did not have an appetite, didn’t even want to smell food. My meals consisted of saltine crackers, Gatorade, and Ginger Ale. This weekend was my first time having as much as a sandwich, and I am slowly getting my appetite back.
I was very eager to get back to baking, but didn’t have a taste for anything too sweet. I also wanted to make something using some of the leftover items I had from the holidays.
I came across this recipe a while ago in my cookbook and marked it, so I decided to go with it. This bread is good and not to sweet at all, it was perfect for what I was looking for. I think it will be the perfect breakfast for a couple of days to help coach my stomach back to health.
