Super moist orange bread studded with juicy cranberries and topped with a sweet, fresh orange glaze.
Oddly enough, this is the first recipe on my blog using cranberries! I just love cranberry and orange together. This super simple quick bread bread bakes up soft, moist and extremely flavorful. The sweet orange bread is studded with tart cranberries throughout. What really ties this whole bread together is the fresh orange glaze on top! It really helps to have a nice sweet and tart combo.
This bread comes together quickly in one bowl for easy clean-up. I think the hardest part about this recipe is chopping those darn cranberries! You can even add some pecans or walnuts along with the cranberries, go crazy!
