Recipe Ingredients for Cranberry-Cornmeal Quick Bread

8 oz unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c sugar
3 T sugar
1 c fresh cranberries
1 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c yellow cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 large eggs
1 T candied ginger, finely chopped

Recipe Directions for Cranberry-Cornmeal Quick Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt 4T (half a stick) butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add 3T sugar, stirring until dissolved. Add cranberries, and stir to coat. Cook until cranberries begin to pop, about 1 minute. Pour into a 5X9" loaf pan, distributing cranberries evenly to cover bottom. Let cool.

  2. Whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat remaining 1-1/2 sticks butter and 1/2c sugar with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. With machine running, add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Reduce speed to low, and slowly add flour mixture, mixing until combined. Fold in ginger. Pour mixture into pan over cranberries. Gently smooth top using an off-set spatula.

  3. Place pan on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until tester inserted into center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack; let cool for 15 minutes. Invert pan to remove bread. Let cool completely on wire rack, cranberry side up. (Bread can be stored, wrapped, at room temperature overnight or refrigerated for up to 5 days.)
