Directions:
Mix all wet ingredients then add flour, baking powder, and salt. Pour into 2 loaf pans and bake at 350 for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean (it's okay for a crumb to stick to the toothpick). Let bread cool well. Pour glaze on top.

I buy extra cranberries around Thanksgiving and freeze them to use throughout the year. You want to buy the whole cranberries in the fresh fruit section of the supermarket, not canned.
