This wonderfully moist fruit and nut bread is a great accompaniment to a soft cheese & prosciutto platter. Alternatively it can just be enjoyed by itself with a light spread of butter.

Cooked Cranberry, Zucchini & Walnut Bread
Baked Cranberry, Zucchini & Walnut Bread. As you can see from the picture, the mixture does rise slightly when baking.


Notes:

In this recipe, I used raw caster sugar instead of white - you can use either.

The cooking times may vary depending on the size of your loaf pan. My loaf pan was slightly smaller than 2 litres so it took one and a half hours to cook. By inserting a skewer in the middle, you should be able to tell if it is cooked or not.

If you don't have sunflower oil, you can substitute this for another oil that doesn't have too strong a flavour. I used rice bran oil.
