Cranberry Orange Bread With Orange Butter

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

There are many similar recipes out there for this kind of bread, but I like this particular one because of the butter! Preparation time does not include time for bread to cool or time for butter to chill.

i made 2 regular loaves with the batter and baked them for 50 minutes until they were cooked. they were very fruity, almost like a fruitcake consistancy. the butter is a nice addition instead of the usual glaze
