A decadent tea bread speckled with tart cranberries, crystallized ginger and white chocolate chips. If that’s not enough to thoroughly entice you then maybe the rich cream cheese frosting slathered generously over top, will.
When you bake fresh cranberries most of their overwhelming tartness is subdued leaving a sweet berry behind. The same goes for the zingy candied ginger too, the sharpness mellows out allowing a wonderful sweet and subtly spicy flavor to shine through.
If any intense flavors do remain they are tempered by the sweetness of white chocolate chips and cream cheese frosting creating a perfect balance of deliciousness, all working together in perfect harmony. Tempting and irresistible.
If you happen to have a rare bag of cranberries left from the holidays or kicking around in your freezer this is a worthy way of using them! If not, you can substitute chopped dried cranberries, although you probably want to cut down on the amount a bit. Blueberries would also be good.
