Cranberry Bread Mix-in-a-Jar

In a 1 quart mason jar, layer the following ingredients in order listed below:
1/2 cup dried orange slices, finely chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries, finely chopped
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 & 1/2 cups Bisquick mix
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

I gently pack each layer before pouring in the next with a wooden tamper.

Then, write or type up and attach a decorative Tag with the following directions and additional ingredients:

Cranberry Bread
1 jar Cranberry Bread Mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 & 1/4 cups milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix wet ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Pour Cranberry Bread jar mix into a separate large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry mix pour wet ingredients into it.  Stir well.  Pour batter into a large loaf pan that is well greased and lined by parchment paper on the bottom.  bake for an hour or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack before removing.  Enjoy!


  1. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH! Love this as a gift idea!

  2. Thank you Parsley for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. You made my day. Thank you.

  3. Hmmm...I wonder if my Baking Mix would work as a substitute for the Bisquick?!?
