CRANBERRY ORANGE BREAD
Today I would love to share with you this delicious Cranberry Orange Bread Recipe. This recipe is the perfect Fall Bread and makes a great gift for neighbors and friends.
I love that this bread has a great texture and tastes delicious. The orange and cranberries give the bread a festive look which adds to the overall presentation.
PAPER LOAF PANS
I found some fun paper loaf pans and used them to bake the Orange Cranberry Bread in. It would be fun to be able to give them to your friends and neighbors in these disposable loaf pans. You could also gift the bread in new mini loaf pans so that your friends can keep the mini loaf pans for their own use.
Simply take a brown paper bag and cut a 1.5 inch strip that will wrap around the bread and tape it on the bottom of the bread. Add some fun embellishments and one of the printable Holiday Gift Tags. Tie them and secure the embellishments in place with some ribbon or baker’s twine. To download the printable Holiday Gift Tags, simply click on the link below:
CRANBERRY BREAD RECIPE
This recipe filled 3 mini loaf pans or will make one regular sized bread loaf.
Orange Cranberry Bread
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
- 1/2 cup pecans coarsely chopped
- 1/4 cup margarine softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup orange juice fresh squeezed is best
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in orange zest, cranberries, and pecans. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in orange juice. Beat in flour mixture until just moistened. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the bread springs back when lightly touched. Let stand 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Wrap in plastic when completely cool.
Give this for a nice little Thanksgiving Host gift or gift them for Christmas! I have shared printable tags for both holidays for you to download!
