How about a slice of cranberry orange bread for breakfast? I can go for this anytime. I’d even love a glass of cranberry orange juice to go with it! 🙂

Can be made in a bread machine too but I haven’t tried that method yet! 

Orange Cranberry Bread

Course: Ordinary Recipes Made Gourmet


  • 1 tbsp. orange zest 

  • 1/2 c. fresh orange juice 

  • 2-1/2 c. all-purpose flour 

  • 1 c. sugar 

  • 2 tsp. baking powder 

  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda 

  • 1/2 tsp. salt 

  • 2 large eggs 

  • 4 tbsp. butter, melted 

  • 2 c. fresh cranberries or 2 c. frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped 


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan and have it ready.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In another small bowl, beat eggs lightly with a whisk or fork, then stir in melted butter, orange peel, and orange juice.
  • Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture, and stir with a spoon until the batter is just mixed, then fold in the cranberries (batter will be stiff). 
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out fairly clean (a crumb or two can stick to it, but you don’t want wet batter).
  • Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and finish cooling on the wire rack. Slice and serve.
