Cranberry ~ Orange ~ Toasting Bread

Cassie *


This is a recipe my Mom gave me, that my Gram used to always make, when she was a kid...This was my first time making it. I loved that it wasn't real sweet, and is best served toasted with butter. I didn't add nuts to mine, only because I was fresh out.

You can make a glaze, as I did with one loaf, This bread would be great with a nice hot cup of java!

1 loaf or 3 mini loaves
10 Min
50 Min


2 c
flour + 1/2 tbsp for cranberries, unless using dried
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
1 c
egg ~ room temp

orange zest - to your liking
2 Tbsp
warm water
1 c
whole cranberries ( mine were froze ) i coated with flour ~ or can use dried


1Preheat oven to 350 degree F. I used 3 mini loaf pans or can use a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Spray with non stick cooking spray.
2In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients.

Add all other ingredients and stir only until all dry ingredients are blended well. I added my cranberries now too, you can always wait and fold them and nuts in last.
3Spoon batter into prepared pan or pans, evenly. Batter will be thick.

Bake in 9 x 13 for 50 - 55 minutes or mini pans for 30 - 35 minutes or until pick comes out clean.
4When done, place on cooling rack for a few minutes, then if you like remove from pan and finish cooling.
