Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 325’.
  2. To the remaining batter add eggs, baking powder, oil, baking soda, orange juice, vanilla, 1 cup sugar, flour, salt, vanilla instant pudding, 2 tsp cinnamon, orange zest, and cranberries. (Make sure the cranberries are mixed in well so they don't end up sitting on the bottom).
  3. Note: It is easier to mix if you combine the dry ingredients (except for sugar and pudding) in another bowl then add it slowly to the batter.
  4. Grease bottom and sides of 2 large loaf pans or spray with Pam. Mix ½ cup sugar and 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Dust the insides of each of the pans with half of the mixture, making sure to cover the bottom and sides well.
  5. Pour batter evenly into the 2 pans and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture over top of the batter.
  6. Bake for approximately 1 hour (until toothpick comes out clean.) Cool until the bread loosens from the pan easily. Turn onto serving dish. May be served warm or cold. Enjoy.

I left out the pudding completely; it baked just fine. I did it for 45 minutes but next time I'd do 35. I also reduced the sweetener to 3/4 cup.
