This sourdough bread is beautiful and delicious! The recipe takes a couple of days to make, but it’s well worth it. It makes two loaves, so I was able to slice one and freeze it for later. Freezing the bread in slices allows me to take some out as needed.
While baking this Cranberry Walnut Bread Sourdough Recipe bread, the oven temperature proved to be too hot and the length of baking time too long. The first baked loaf had a slightly burnt bottom and would have certainly burned through if I waited the recommended time. So, for the second loaf, I reduced the oven temperature to 400 degrees and baked it for only 20 minutes after taking off the cover. The results were a perfectly browned loaf.
This cranberry nut bread recipe is from the Homemade Food Junkie website. Due to the abundance of annoying popup ads covering critical information, this was a very difficult recipe to follow. I suggest either viewing the recipe in print mode or finding a way to filter out the ads.
Nonetheless, it turned out to be a wonderful tasting bread that would be great on your Thanksgiving table, or for turkey sandwiches. It’s also delicious just toasted with butter or jelly.
Happy Thanksgiving! — Carole
