Moist Orange Cranberry Bread, made with fresh cranberries and fresh orange juice. This Cranberry Orange Bread is one of the BEST things you’ll have all fall!
Fall has finally hit Texas!!! Well, at least for a week! But I’ll take what I can get.
This past weekend we had a “LumberJack” party for my nephew who turned one and when I woke up it was 65 degrees outside! (insert big wow face emoji)
I got to wear jeans and a flannel shirt. It was glorious! After the party we headed back to the house and stopped at a fall festival at one of the churches in our area. Cason got to go to a petting zoo, play in the jump houses, and then we went through the huge pumpkin patch to take photos.
A MUST this time of year.
Kids and Pumpkin photos are just too cute to resist! So I didn’t. I snapped away as he was running around picking up pumpkins (and dropping them … shhh) and weaving in and out of the aisles. It was amazing … LOVE me some family time!!
By the end of the day, mommy, daddy, and Cason were all exhausted! But definitely a good exhausted.
Since it felt like a glorious fall weekend I needed to make something that made the house smell like fall.
And this Cranberry Orange Bread did just the trick! I am kinda obsessed with this combination in the fall. Well, this .. and anything with Pumpkin or Apples. Yummy! I think those have to be staple flavors in the fall. Don’t you!?
This bread recipe was slightly tweaked from my Cranberry Orange Muffins, that went crazy on Pinterest a couple years ago! So I know it’s a goodie! We make it almost every fall, and it’s gone in like a day!
This Orange Cranberry Bread is crusty on the outside and super moist on the inside! If you don’t have coconut oil you can easily substitute it for canola oil. But the fresh orange juice is a must! It adds sweetness to the bread and adds to the moistness! Also be sure to use fresh cranberries or frozen … NOT dried!
We’ve been known to have this for breakfast, a mid-day snack or even dessert!
So if you’re looking for a taste of the fall then this recipe it is! All that’s required for this bread are 10 ingredients, 30 minutes, and a hungry belly!
Do you think you can manage that?
I think so! So what are you waiting for! Deliciousness awaits you!
