Instructions For Cranberry Orange Bread:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine melted butter, orange juice, orange zest, eggs, sugar and buttermilk with an electric mixer. Blend until well combined.

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix just until combined.

Mix 1 1/4 cup cranberries with 1/2 tablespoon flour. (reserve 1/4 cup of the 1 1/2 cups cranberries for the top of the bread)

Next, fold in flour dusted cranberries.

Place batter into a 9 x 5 inch greased bread pan (or use parchment paper, if desired).

Lightly press 1/4 cup cranberries (the reserved cranberries) into the top of the bread.

Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes.

After baking, remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then loosen edges of the bread with a butter knife.

Remove bread from the pan and finish cooling on a cooling rack.

When cooled, mix powdered sugar and orange juice or milk until well blended. Drizzle over the top of the cranberry orange bread.

Refrigerate or serve. This bread will freeze beautifully. If freezing to use later, I like to slice the bread before I freeze it. It makes it easier to use.

    This is soo good! Even better than my Cherry Eggnog bread! Thank you!

    1. Veronica, Thank you for reaching out and for the kind comment! I am so happy you love this recipe! Cherry Eggnog bread sounds yummy! 😊

  4. I’d like to make mini loaves to give as gifts, how many will the recipe make, and how long should I bake them? Thanks!

    1. Tricia, Such a great idea! I have not made mini loaves with this recipe. I would start checking for a set or giggly center or with a toothpick at 25 minutes. Then, keep checking until you have a nearly clean toothpick. I hope this works-I’d love to hear how they turned out! 😊

  5. I would like to double this wonderful recipe and make two loaves, or several mini pans. Is it safe to just double the entire recipe. Thanks

    1. Hi, I have not doubled this recipe before. However, I think it will be fine to double the recipe. Let me know how it goes. 😊
