Cranberry Orange Bread/Muffins

Teresa Jacobson


These are my oldest sons favorite! These freeze really well and can be pulled out thawed to room temp and enjoyed for breakfast on the go or for unexpected company. A holiday favorite! * Cranberry Orange is second from right. Also pictured Lemon Poppyseed, Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread, and Eggnog Bread for which I have also listed the recipes here on JAP.
