Cranberry Orange Quick Bread

I used fresh cranberries so this bread is quite tart. Feel free to substitute the dried, sweetened variety if you prefer. I'm looking forward to having a slice in the morning... maybe with a little smear of fresh butter. Mmmm... Maybe I won't be able to wait until the morning!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

This recipe makes 2 loaves


3 cups of flour
1 1/2 cup of sugar, plus 2 tbs
2 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
1 cup of canola oil
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup of fresh cranberries

Using a knife or mini blender chop cranberries add 2 tbs of sugar and set aside.

In a large bowl mix together eggs and sugar
Add flour and baking powder
Add canola oil and vanilla
Slowly add flour and baking powder and mix until well blender
Stir in cranberries

Pour into 2 well greased loaf pans

Place in oven 1 hour until lightly golden brown. (45 minutes in convection oven.)

Serve with butter, Marmalade or on its own!
