Cranberry Orange Bread

Are you looking for something delicious and easy to make for Easter morning? Yes? Me too. Sooooo, I went to my freezer to see what frozen goodies I had. The answer, nothing sweet. Boo. But I did have some beautiful cranberries that my friend Nicole had given me. It doesn’t take much for an idea to form when you have something so beautiful to work with!

This bread is SO easy to make, but super dense. So it really does only make one loaf. A big loaf, but one.  I used a recipe from and modified it a bit (as you do).

This is what you’ll need;

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 tea baking powder

1 tea salt

1/2 tea baking soda

3/4 cups orange juice

1 tbsp. grated orange peel

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 egg

1 1/2 cups cranberries, washed

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Spray a loaf pan.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in orange juice, orange peel, oil and egg. Mix until blended. Fold in cranberries and walnuts.

Add to your prepared loaf pan. Dot the top with cranberries.

Bake for 45-60 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Serve. If you wish to freeze, let cook completely, wrap in tin foil and then place in a Ziploc freezer bag. This should keep up to 3 months in the freezer!
