Cranberry Orange Bread with Simple Glaze

Why We Love Cranberry Orange Bread: Perfect for Breakfast or Dessert– I could really savor a piece of this bread for breakfast or dessert; perhaps mid-afternoon for a snack!

Ideal For the Holiday Season One of my favorite dishes to cook when cranberries are in season is this mouthwatering sweet bread, which combines sweet oranges with somewhat sour cranberries. On a holiday table, this dish is always welcome; it also makes a terrific recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas sweets.

Make use of those seasonal cranberries. Only for a brief period of time are cranberries found in supermarkets! To have this great bread all year long, freeze extras fresh and in season.

Sweet Glaze Creates More Of A Treat. The sweet glaze really makes this bread seem very unique and is bursting with orange taste.

1/2 cups plus one tablespoon all-purpose flour, split

Two tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp kosher salt

One cup regular whole-milk yogurt

1 cup of sugar

Three great eggs

Two tablespoons grated orange zest; one-half teaspoon pure vanilla essence

One half a cup vegetable oil

One half cup fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed, washed

For the orange syrup:

One third cup freshly squeezed orange juice

One three-fourth cup sugar

Regarding the Orange Glaze:

Two to three tablespoons fresh orange juice, sieved one cup confectioners’ sugar

Making Cranberry Orange Bread Using Simple Glaze:

Turn the oven’s temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Dust with flour, tapping out excess; grease the sides and bottom of one 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium basin; put aside.

Whisk in a large bowl the yogurt, sugar, eggs, orange zest, vanilla, and oil. Whisk the dry ingredients slowly into the wet ones. Combine the cranberries with the remaining tablespoon of flour in a separate bowl; very gently incorporate them into the batter.

Spoon the batter into the ready pan; bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick put in the middle of the loaf comes out with some moist crumbs attached. After letting cool in the pan for ten minutes, remove loaf to a wire rack atop a baking sheet.

Make the orange syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat while the loaf cools. Stir together the sugar and orange juice until the sugar dissolves completely. Once dissolved, keep cooking for three more minutes. Turn off the heat; save.

Pierce holes in the heated loaf’s top and sides with a toothpick. Apply the orange syrup brushing the top and sides of the bread. Let the syrup sink into the cake then brush one more. Allow the bread to cool entirely.

Whisk the confectioners’ sugar and two to three tablespoons orange juice in a small dish to produce the orange glaze. Though pourable, the mixture should be thick. If the mixture is too thick, add yet another tablespoon of orange juice. Over each loaf’s top, pour the orange glaze; let it run down the sides. Let the orange glaze set, perhaps fifteen minutes, before serving.
