4 ounces cream cheese, softened.
1 1/4 Cups.Of granulated sugar.
2 large eggs.
2 Tsp.Of vanilla extract.
2 Cups.Of all-purpose flour.

1/2 Cup.Of whole milk.
1 1/2 Cups.Of fresh or frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped.
FOR THE GLAZE:
1/2 Cup.Of powdered sugar.
1 Tbsp.of milk.
Prepare a temperature in your oven of 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). Prepare a loaf pan that is 9×5 inches by greasing and flouring it.
To make the filling, put the butter, cream cheese, and granulated sugar into a large mixing basin and beat them together until they are frothy and light.
Add the eggs one at a time, being sure to give the mixture a thorough mix after each addition. Stir in the essence of vanilla bean.
Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate dish until well combined.
Begin and finish with the flour mixture as you gradually add the milk to the butter mixture while alternating between each addition of the flour combination and the milk. Mix until everything is evenly distributed.
Add the chopped cranberries and mix gently. Then pour the batter into the loaf pan that has been prepped and level the top.
Bake for about 60–70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake emerges clean.
After ten minutes, remove the loaf from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool entirely.
Combine the powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. After the loaf has cooled down to room temperature, the glaze should be drizzled on top.
