  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cup fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup [1 stick] butter melted
  • 1 cup 2% or whole milk plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 large oranges zested (around 3 Tbsp)
  • 2 teaspoon pure orange extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Glaze: mix together until smooth
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a standard 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan or spritz with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Sift together the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, yogurt, eggs, orange zest, orange extract and and vanilla extract.
  • By hand mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until moistened. The batter will be thick. Gently fold the whole cranberries into the batter until they're evenly distributed.
  • Spoon into the prepared loaf pan spreading the batter evenly.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden and a tester inserted into the center comes back clean. Cool completely. (Tip: Check the bread at 50 minutes and lay a piece of aluminum foil on top if needed to prevent over browning)
  • Cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then remove from the pan and onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • To glaze, mix together the powdered sugar, orange juice and zest until the sugar is completely dissolved. Drizzle on top of the cranberry-orange bread.
