video instructions available below 👇 


– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
– ½ teaspoon baking soda
– ½ teaspoon salt
– 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries (if using frozen, do not thaw)
– Zest of 1 orange
– ¾ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
– 2 eggs
– ½ cup vegetable oil
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

3. Gently fold in the cranberries and orange zest until evenly distributed throughout the flour mixture.

4. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Then, add the orange juice, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract, and whisk until well combined.

5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in a dense bread.

6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly with a spatula.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

8. Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

9. Serve slices of cranberry orange bread on their own or with a dollop of whipped cream or cream cheese for added indulgence.
