Cranberry Orange Bread

I was in the mood for some sort of bread to have in the morning before we leave on a trip…. and I’m burnt out on banana or pumpkin bread, so I tried this cranberry bread and it’s quite good…. sweet but with the tartness of the cranberries.  I decided to make it in a 9×9 pan instead of a loaf pan to see how it would turn out and I really like it this way, it seems like you get more!


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup butter, cold, cut into small cubes
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp grated orange peel
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
In a large bowl combine flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, nutmeg.

Cut in butter cubes with a pastry blender or a fork until mixture is crumbly and butter is mostly broken up.

Add beaten egg, orange peel, and orange juice, stir until mixture is evenly moist.

 Fold in cranberries.  Spoon into a greased 9×9 square pan (or a loaf pan).

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes (or double that in the loaf pan) or until a butter knife inserted comes out clean.  Cool and slice.
