Cranberry Orange Bread With Grand Marnier Glaze

Mikekey *


This is a combination of a couple of recipes. The original one with the glaze was WAY too high in fat and sugar, so I used another bread recipe and the glaze from the original. Nice addition to the holiday dessert table, or as a gift

How to Make Cranberry Orange Bread With Grand Marnier Glaze


  • 1Move oven rack to low position so that top of pan will be in center of oven. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease bottom only of a loaf pan, 8 1/2x4 1/2x2 inches.
  • 2Stir together cranberries, sugar, oil, milk, orange extract, orange peel and eggs in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into pan.
  • 3Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on wire rack.
  • 4Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and Grand Marnier, a tablespoon at a time. Glaze should be the consistency of corn syrup.
  • 5Loosen sides of loaves from pan; remove from pan and place top side up on wire rack. Place wire rack over a cookie sheet.
  • 6With a skewer, poke deep holes in top of loaf (about 10 holes evenly spaced). Drizzle with glaze so that it coats the top, runs down the sides and seeps through the holes.
  • 7Cool completely before slicing.
