The Classy Cook: Cranlicious!

Looking down on two loaves of cranberry bread and cranberries

This cranberry and walnut bread, with a hint of orange zest, is the perfect food for an autumn morning breakfast or late afternoon snack.

According to Addie, it’s best served with a scoop of

vanilla ice cream.


1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup honey

1/3 cup olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 eggs

Orange zest from one orange

3/4 cup orange juice

1 1/2 cups dried cranberries

1 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat to 350 degrees and spray loaf pan with cooking spray. Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir to mix thoroughly. Add cranberries and walnuts. Stir to coat. In mixer, combine honey, oil, and eggs. Blend thoroughly. Add orange zest and juice. Mix well. Add flour mixture and mix only until just blended. Pour into loaf pan. Bake for 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
