Quick and Easy Banana Apple and Cranberry Bread



I spotted this recipe at Kitchen Snippets and printed it out straight away. It's one of those "one look and I will definitely love it recipe". What not to love? With bananas, cranberries AND apple! I whipped this out for morning tea for my team at work and it was nearly gone.

I made some changes to the recipe, such as increasing the amount of banana, and decreased the amount of sugar. I find that cranberries can add a sweetness to it, so less sugar is more in this recipe. It stayed really moist and hubby commented that he could really taste the banana in this. I was tempted to add a handful of chocolate to it but I am glad I resisted. It's great the way it is. With only using olive oil and fruits, it's a healthy alternative to other cakes out there!
