Cranberry Pecan Bread

Last weekend I got to eat some of Linda's super yummy cranberry bread for breakfast. After finding a recipe in my American Classics cookbook, I decided to try my hand at it.

I made the mistake of using dried cranberries instead of fresh/frozen, but it isn't a mistake that ruined the loaf.

I had a slice this morning for breakfast, one side dipped in egg and then fried, french toast style. Very good.

If you want to compare recipes, here is what went in mine:

1 T grated orange zest
1/3 C fresh orange juice
2/3 C buttermilk
6 T unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
2 C flour
1 C sugar
1 ts salt
1 ts baking powder
1/4 ts baking soda
1 1/2 C cranberries
1/2 C pecans, coarse chop

Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, then reduce temp to 350 for another 45. Makes one 5x9 loaf pan.


  1. That looks amazing! Definitely a keeper for the coffee shop. Do you think that would be in the "healthy food" category or the "this will go straight to my waistline" category? Adam only wants me making "healthy food" category items as I have made too many of the other!

  2. Really, everything is in that category. It's all so good, people can't stop eating it!

  3. i got a bread machine as an early christmas present - maybe tomorrow i will try my hand at it, but of course it will do all the mixing, rising and cooking for me :O)
