This delicious cranberry orange bread recipe is sweet and moist with an added citrus kick from orange zest. Enjoy it for breakfast or dessert – your choice!
Dried cranberries can be substituted for fresh ones, but I prefer to rehydrate them with about 1/4 cup of water or orange juice before adding them to the batter.
Cranberry orange bread is an irresistibly festive holiday breakfast recipe that makes a lovely present. Packed full of sweet orange flavor and tart cranberries, it’s drizzled in an incredible orange glaze for added flair.
For this recipe, you’ll need flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, butter, orange juice and cranberries. Additionally, an egg and vanilla extract are required for flavor. The eggs and milk add moisture to the mix while adding bright cranberries for an added festive kick.
Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper so that it is easy to remove after baking.
Once the bread has cooled, you’ll need to make an orange glaze. This simple no-knead recipe calls for powdered sugar and reserved orange zest, giving the citrus flavors a powerful boost.
Bread can be left out overnight on the counter to cool, but for optimal flavor and texture it should be stored in a covered container for several hours prior to serving. Doing this allows any excess moisture to escape before becoming gummy.
You can make this recipe dairy-free by omitting the eggs and using oil or a plant-based butter (like coconut oil). Vegans may want to substitute flax egg in place of an egg for extra protein.
To make this recipe gluten-free, substitute certified gluten free oat flour. Alternatively, you can experiment with different combinations of gluten free flours to see what works best for your needs.
This moist and tender cranberry orange bread is delicious warm or at room temperature on a plate with your favorite savory toppings.
Bread is delicious on its own, but it also makes a perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee or tea. To add an extra festive touch, frost the bread with either melted coconut butter or your favorite store-bought frosting.

Flour, sugar, and leaveners come together to form a firm loaf that’s moist and tender. Cinnamon and nutmeg add subtle warmth to the flavors while baking powder and buttermilk help the dough rise; canola oil provides added softness by breaking up gluten strands in the flour. This recipe makes enough dough for two loaves!
If you wish to use dried cranberries, soak them for 10 minutes or warm them in your preferred liquid (such as orange juice) for 30 seconds before adding them to the batter. Finally, fold them gently so as not to discolor the bread too much.
Instead of using whole cranberries, chop them for more even distribution and an enhanced cranberry flavor.
Microplaning the cranberries will help remove their bitter skins, but you could also use a knife or spatula. For best results, line your baking pan with parchment paper so that your cranberry bread releases easily from its pan as it cools.
Once your baking pan is greased and lined with parchment paper, fill it with the cranberry mixture until it reaches within 1 inch of the top. Place on a rack to bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Once the bread is done baking, let it cool completely before applying icing. For an extra sweet and creamy touch, drizzle some orange glaze or spread some jam or coconut butter on each slice for an irresistibly creamy touch!
This delicious cranberry orange bread makes an excellent breakfast or gift, and can be served for either a festive brunch or on-the-go! Plus, you can freeze slices for later.
This Wegmans Cranberry Orange Bread recipe is an effortless vegan delight that’s packed with fresh cranberries, applesauce and walnuts. It’s the ideal way to add a sweet note to any meal – taking just over an hour to bake!
Begin by preheating the oven to 350oF/180degC. Lightly greasing a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan will help with this step. In a liquid measuring cup, mix milk and vinegar to create homemade vegan buttermilk; set aside while you gather other ingredients.
Next, whisk together sugar, soy milk (or other plant-based milk), orange zest and juice, oil, flax eggs and vanilla until well mixed. Next stir in dry ingredients then fold in frozen cranberries and walnuts – if using frozen cranberries make sure they get coated with some flour first so they don’t sink to the bottom of the batter.
Once all ingredients are mixed together, pour into a prepared pan and top with more cranberries. Bake in the center of the oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the sides begin to pull away from the pan (55 minutes to an hour; I did 1 hour).
Once the bread has cooled completely, make the glaze. Mix together powdered sugar and orange juice until well combined, then drizzle it over the bread. If the glaze is too thin for your liking, feel free to thicken with more powdered sugar or more juice.
Serve the cranberry orange bread with coffee or tea as a delicious breakfast or snack on its own.
