Classic combination, isn’t it ? And looks very festive.
I tried to do a smart thing here and added 1 spoonful of coconut flour and removed 1 spoonful of flour from 1 cup measurement . As I was pouring batter into pan, realizes coconut flour needs more liquid . Crap I thought … then realized I added all this cranberries which will burst and provide some moisture as it bakes.
And bread turned out ok. I already ate 2 pieces hot from oven . Try to add some almond flour instead if you have .
Pan is from dollar tree and I love it’s size . It fits into my toaster oven and so I don’t need to turn on oven for small baking. And I can experiment with baking just 1 cup. No need to bake big cakes and bread .

Do you have almond flour that needs to be used like me ? Almond flour will go rancid after a while so use it before that . Made this easy breezy almond flour squares.
