Cranberry Orange Bread

Lately, I have been honing in on the very best versions of all sorts of recipes. One day, I would like to create my very own cook book. I think there is something, maybe romantic, about a family book of recipes to pass down generation after generation. {I'm a sucker for tradition!} 

But before I write a book, and if you haven't already, subscribe to this blog, on the right side of this page, to get every post sent to your email! It only takes a minute and you'll get fabulous recipes, great info and hilarious stories of our very young family learning how to homestead and building a cabin in the woods!

Where was I..? Oh YES!! I think I've created the very best version of Cranberry Orange Bread. It as the right amount of orange, the right amount of tangy cranberries and a perfect texture! These are so good, I have even thrown it into muffin cups for a delicious grab and go snack. In fact, everyone in our house prefer this over Chocolate Chip Banana Bread AND Zucchini Bread. That's sayin' something! I mean, my lil monkey would bathe in bananas if I let him!

Create a well in the middle of dry ingredients to combine orange juice, eggs, and oil before mixing all ingredients together until just combined. 

Fold in cranberries. 

Pour into a sprayed 9"x 5" loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes or until cooked thoroughly and a toothpic can be inserted in the middle and comes out clean. 

Let cool in loaf pan for 15 minutes.

  1. Very disappointing. There's no orange flavour at all.

    1. Hey, thanks for reading! Grating the peel of an entire navel orange is usually plenty to please our family and guests, but consider adding more grated peel for your needs! Thanks again for reading!
