During the holidays, both Thanksgiving and Christmas – I always like to try some new recipes. It’s not always about the main holiday meal – having an easy yet yummy Breakfast is always on my to-do list as well; whether it’s for while we watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade on Thanksgiving morning or while opening our gifts on Christmas morning! For thanksgiving this year, I have decided to make a Cranberry Breakfast Bread. I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest and altered it a little to my own liking. I think this would also be great with some other fruit or orange juice added!
Cranberry Breakfast Bread Recipe
- 2 CUPS Flour
- 1/4 TSP Baking Soda
- 1 1/2 TSP Baking Powder
- 1 TSP Salt
- 1 1/2 CUPS Chopped Fresh Cranberries
- 2 Goldrich Eggs
- 3/4 CUP Buttermilk
- 1 1/2 TSP Vanilla
- 1/4 CUP Canola Oil
- 1 CUP Sugar
- 2 TBSP Butter (melted)
STEP ONE: Preheat oven at 375° F and butter or grease the bottom and sides of your bread pan.
STEP TWO: In a large bowl, mix together 2 CUPS Flour, 1/4 TSP Baking Soda, 1 1/2 TSP Baking Powder and 1 TSP Salt.
STEP THREE: When well mixed, add in one cup of chopped fresh Cranberries (I just cut each cranberry in half) and mix together.
STEP FOUR: In another bowl, mix together 2 Goldrich Eggs, 3/4 CUP Buttermilk, 1 1/2 TSP Vanilla, 1/4 CUP Canola Oil and 1 Cup Sugar. I recommend using Goldrich Eggs as they have the a great rich flavor and a deep golden color. Much better than your generic store brand egg, in my opinion.
STEP FIVE: Once well mixed together and sugar dissolved, slowly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix together until well moistened but it’s ok if there are a few lumps and pour into greased bread pan.
STEP SIX: If you have a few extra cranberries, sprinkle them on top as well and add some extra sugar on top. This should give your bread a sweeter crust.
STEP SEVEN: Bake bread for 35-40 minutes (or until golden brown on top and tooth pick comes out clean).
STEP EIGHT: Remove from pan when cooled, brush with melted butter and sprinkle some sugar on top of melted butter. Serve at room temperature or headed with melted butter (great for breakfast!).
I just love using Cranberries for the fall and winter holidays. I grew up on Cape Cod – where many of the original ocean spray cranberries came from – so I’ve always been a fan! If you are looking for another great Cranberry recipe, you have to check out my sister’s homemade Cranberry Sauce – It’s the best around!
