Cranberry Apple Quick Bread with Coffee Glaze

This post is sponsored in conjunction with Fall Flavors Week. I received complimentary product from a sponsor company to aid in the creation of a Fall Flavors recipe.  All opinions are mine alone.

The leaves are changing, temps are dropping, and I'm getting excited to spend more time in the kitchen.  One of my favorite things to make in fall are quick breads because not only are they delicious, but they freeze so well too. 

I adapted this recipe from a cut out I found in my Gram's recipe box.  I added the dried cranberries, and knew that I wanted to put some kind of a glaze on it. Door County Coffee & Tea Company sent us an amazing selection of their fall flavors to try, and I chose Autumn Spice, which is flavored with cinnamon and complements the bread perfectly.


Even though the recipe just calls for a bit, brew a whole pot, because once you smell it, you're going to want to drink a nice big cup alongside your slice of quick bread. 


I went with a looser glaze this time, but you can add as little or as much coffee as you like until it reaches the desired consistency. Do yourself a big favor and place a cooling rack over an edged sheet pan before glazing the breads. It makes for much easier clean up.


We had company over and I knew both loaves were going to disappear quickly, so I went ahead and glazed both.  If you intend to freeze one, don't glaze it until you defrost it.


So happy with how this turned out.  Grating the apples gives you the taste and the moisture without having to worry if big chunks will cook through.  The dried cranberries give a nice little pop of tartness.  And the coffee glaze just ties it all together.
