Cranberry Orange Bread is the perfect holiday treat! It fills your home with yummy cranberry, orange and bread aromas plus it is as delicious as it smells!Cranberry Orange Bread is always on the menu during the holidays! I had some fresh cranberries on hand so I decided to bake a recipe for Cranberry bread that was in our family cookbook. I love the fresh, tart flavor of cranberries and the added sweetness in this bread highlights them beautifully. The orange zest addition is a winner too- the two flavors pair well together in my opinion. This bread is great for breakfast, or as a snack or dessert! Enjoy.

Can you freeze Cranberry Orange Bread?

Yes! I love making desserts throughout the fall and Winter months so I am not stressed out about all of the baking that needs to be done for Thanksgiving and Christmas! To freeze wrap the bread tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place it in a heavy-duty freezer bag. So easy!

 

Fresh Cranberry Orange Bread

  • 2-3 cups fresh cranberries {I used about 2.5 cups}
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil {I used coconut oil instead}
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 TBSP orange zest
  • 2-3 TBSP coarse sugar {optional but a lovely touch!}
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray loaf pans with cooking spray.
  2. Mix sugars, oil, vanilla and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add milk and stir to combine. Stir in flour, baking soda and baking powder and salt. Gently fold in cranberries, orange zest and nuts.
  3. Divide batter evenly between loaf pans. Gently sprinkle coarse sugar on top of batter.
  4. Bake 8″ loaves about 50 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. 9″ loaves bake 60-70 minutes. Mini loaves bake about 45 minutes.
  5. Cool on a baking rack prior to serving.

Enjoy!
