Cranberry Orange Sweet Bread Recipe

Cranberry Orange Sweet Bread Recipe
How many of you love making and baking sweet breads or quick breads? I enjoy baking some type of homemade bread about twice a month and most of the time I incorporate some type of fruit into the mix. Today, I'm sharing my grandmother's recipe with all of you on how to make a delicious and moist homemade Cranberry Orange Bread.

Cranberry Orange Sweet Bread Recipe

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup whole milk
12 oz. frozen cranberries. thawed
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. orange zest (grated orange rind)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking or baking spray.

In a large mixing bowl sift together the all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another large mixing bowl beat together the melted butter, large egg and milk until creamy. Beat this wet mixture into your dry mixture until well combined. Fold in the thawed cranberries and orange zest.

Pour bread batter into your prepared loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until done. Remove and let cool.

Note: Often times when I make homemade bread, I will double or triple my recipe. I will make multiple loaves and then freeze them for later. They will often keep for 1-3 months, depending on the type of bread that you make.

I also love quick breads and cakes. This recipe uses some of my favorite ingredients. This is also a great recipe for Thanksgiving.
