Cranberry Banana Bread

We had a fight over something last week, so to make my DH talk to me, I baked these cakes. The Banana Walnut bread that I make are his favorites. I tried a variation of that with cranberries this time. It turned out really moist and delicious. And yes, you guessed it right, DH was all praise for it. Later he did ask me, if I baked it to get him talking. :o)
