Neighborhood Gift Idea #2: Cranberry Orange Bread

I don’t know if anyone has ever spent what seems like a lifetime looking for a really good (dare I say…) the BEST Cranberry Orange bread…like I have but I was super excited when my cousin brought this to me for a Christmas present. She gave it out as neighborhood gifts (we live in the same neighborhood) and since then the whole neighborhood has started making it. It is so delicious, so orange, and so cranberry. I’ve even made it lower fat by adding in beans from my food storage instead of the oil and it was still oh so delicious.


2 c. flour (try using at least 1/4 c. whole wheat flour)
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
3/4 c. orange juice
2 T. veg. oil (or bean puree)
1 T. grated orange peel
1 egg, well beaten (1 T. dry egg powder +2 T. water)
1 1/2 C. fresh or frozen cranberries (chopped)
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease pan. Mix dry ingredients in medium bowl. Stir in OJ, peel, oil and egg. Mix til well blended. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Spread evenly in pan. Bake til toothpick comes out clean (about 55 minutes for a 9×5 pan). Cool on rack 15 minutes remove from pan; cool completely. Glaze. If you want to bake it in a Bundt pan, double the recipe and cook about 10 minutes longer.
Orange Glaze
1 lb. powdered sugar
1/4 c. OJ
1 t. grated orange peel
2 T. softened butter (or 1 stick for frosting)

    I made this today, and my loaf ended up pretty flat on top. Is that the way the loaf is supposed to look? It smells great, and I know it’ll taste fine; I just don’t know if it turned out right. I know my baking soda and powder are fresh, because I just opened them. Also, did you double the recipe for the bundt pan in your picture? Thanks!

      Yes I did double the recipe for the bundt. I don’t remember how raised it gets but if it tasted good then that is all that matters
