Holiday Season Cranberry Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by - Carla -

We always have a lot of people visiting during the holiday season and it's always nice to have a little something homemade on hand to offer. This bread is nice to give away as gifts during the holidays. Delicious plain, with butter or with cream cheese (<-- my personal favorite). Thank you mom for this recipe. :)

This is a wonderful holiday bread. I make it every year and give some of the loaves to my close friends and neighbors who look forward to this special treat. It is especially delicious served with a hot cup of Christmas tea.

  1. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and soda into large bowl and set aside.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons melted butter to 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice.
  3. Add beaten egg to orange mixture and add to dry ingredients.
