Description

Slightly sweet Orange Cranberry Bread marries citrus/tart flavors in a bread perfect for your morning toast or a decadent French Toast treat!

Ingredients

  • 1-¼ cup Orange Juice, Room Temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3-¼ cups Bread Flour
  • 1-½ Tablespoon Sugar Or Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Orange Zest
  • 2 teaspoons Yeast
  • ¾ cups Cranberries

Preparation

Program machine for a 2-pound loaf on the light crust setting.

Add ingredients (except the cranberries) into your machine in the order recommended by your manufacturer. Add the cranberries at the machine’s recommended “addition” time.

The bread will brown easily and would do well on a sandwich setting if your machine has it. I don’t have a sweet bread setting, but this might work well also due to the high sugar content.

Alternatively, the bread will come out wonderfully mixed either by hand or in a stand mixer and baked in the oven. However, I have always used my machine and do not have a recommended oven baking temperature.

I made this bread yesterday for my husband who is a cranberry orange fiend. I altered the quantities of ingredients as follows: I used a tbsp of orange zest, 2 1/4 tsp yeast, 2 tbsp of butter, 3 tbsp honey, all purpose flour instead of bread flour (I used King Arthur unbleached AP flour which has a slightly higher gluten content than bleached AP flours,) and a heaping 1/2 c of dried cranberries. My husband loves Thomas’s holiday season cranberry orange English muffins, so I was trying to get a little closer to that flavor. I don’t have a bread maker so I baked the bread in a 9×5 buttered pan in a 350 oven for approximately 35 minutes. I also put an empty pan in the bottom of my oven so I could add some water to increase the oven spring. The bread came out beautifully with a nice brown crust and a beautiful soft crumb and texture. My house smelled amazing while the bread was baking. The next time I bake this bread I’ll used 3/4 c of cranberries. Thanks so much for such a great recipe. My husband is tickled pink and now he can have his favorite bread all year long!

I made this in my breadmaker last night, so that we could use it for french toast this morning. Oh, wow, is this bread tasty! So soft, the perfect amount of orange flavor to compliment the craisins. I am looking forward to just toasting some up in the morning for breakfast. I will definitely make this again and again!

Made this lovely bread. It’s a perfect soft bread, not a sweet bread, and the orange and cranberry tang comes out nicely. It would be great as a sandwich bread for turkey and fixin’s. We ate as toast with our coffee. I used the bread machine with “dough” cycle and baked at 350 degrees F, about 30-35 minutes…I did lose track of time but when I began smelling the wonderful aromas of orange and cranberry, I had a wonderful fresh bread with a nice medium brown crust. MMMMM!
