Cranberry Citrus Bread Recipe
Fresh cranberries and two types of citrus give this Cranberry Citrus Bread a fresh and festive taste. Perfect for holiday gift giving!
roughly chopped fresh cranberries
fresh lemon zest
all purpose flour
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium bowl mix together cranberries, lemon peel and 1/4 c. sugar. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl or bowl of a standing mixer, whisk together flour, 1/2 c. sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together canola oil, orange juice and eggs until well mixed.
All at once add the oil/juice/egg mixture to the flour mixture.
Beat until combined, scraping sides of the bowl a few times.
Gently fold in cranberry/lemon zest/sugar mixture.
Pour into prepared large loaf pan or 3 small loaf pans.
Bake 30 - 35 minutes (small) or 45 - 50 min. (large) until lightly browned and knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely before serving.
