Looking for an easy quick bread bursting with citrus flavor and bright orange color? Try this Cranberry Whole Orange Bread.
Before we jump into the recipe, I want to tell you a few things about the ingredients:
Cranberries: I sure hope you can still buy some fresh cranberries this late in the season or you saved a few bags in your freezer. If not, you can use fresh or frozen blueberries instead.
Oranges: As much as I love navel oranges, you don’t want to use them for this recipe. They have too much pith (the white stuff in the peel) that can make this bitter. Also, since you are going to use the entire orange, peel and all, I highly recommend using organic fruit or at the least scrub the peel very well before using.
