Orange Cranberry Loaf


Orange Cranberry Loaf is wonderful with fresh berries when cranberries are in season, but you can make it with frozen cranberries as well. I had initially planned on making these into muffins, but in a last minute decision, I opted for the loaf pan and I am so happy with how it turned out. My preschooler tried a slice and came running back to the kitchen to tell me it was "so so good!" I really enjoyed the tartness of the cranberries paired with the sweetness in the bread. It really pairs well with tea and coffee. If you have a sweet tooth or plan on serving this as a dessert dish, you could also serve it with a simple glaze by mixing together 1 Cup powdered sugar, 3 Tbsp water, and 1 tsp orange extract.
