Steps to make Cranberry Swirl Bread

1

Combine dry ingredients

1

In a bowl of a stand mixer, combine the sugar, yeast, salt and 1 cup flour.

2

Combine wet ingredients

In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir the water, milk and butter until butter is melted. Remove from heat and cool until mixture is lukewarm.

3

Combine all ingredients

2

Once cooled, pour the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix on speed 1 to combine.

4

Add remaining flour

5

Gradually add the remaining flour, 1 cup at a time, until a smooth dough is formed, increasing the speed to 2. Continue mixing until a clean ball forms.

5

Rise

1h

Using your hands, shape a smooth ball and transfer to a large, greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and rest for 1 hour to rise in volume to double the size.

Prepare cranberry sauce

15

In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir cranberries, sugar, cornstarch and water and cook for about 10-15 minutes until mixture thickens. Cover slightly to prevent cranberries from bursting.

Add cranberry sauce

1

Spread the cranberry sauce, generously over the dough about 1-inch from edges.
