This recipe for Frosted Cranberry Nut Bread is really a ‘loaf of kindness’; a sweet treat baked with love to share with friends, family, and special community members who you appreciate.
Baking is a joy when you are in the kitchen creating a loaf of delicious Frosted Cranberry Nut Bread! The best part about this recipe is that this bread is made with 100% fresh ingredients- fresh cranberries, oranges, and nuts.
How to make Cranberry Nut Bread
I highly recommend you use a food processor for this recipe, it makes chopping the nuts and fresh cranberries a breeze. I also strongly recommend you prep all your ingredients first before continuing with the recipe. You could even prep them the night before.
First, Toast pecans in your oven for just a few minutes to give their mildly-sweet flavors some depth.
Next, combine the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls first before gently folding them together. Then add the chopped berries and nuts.
Empty your Frosted Cranberry Nut Bread batter into a greased and floured loaf pan and smooth the top. Pop it into the oven to bake for about an hour (ee recipe below).
Don’t slice into this bread until it has cooled for at least 1 hour! It will not slice pretty. Trust me.
Smother your Cranberry Nut Bread with Orange Glaze
You can skip the ‘Frosted’ part of Frosted Cranberry Nut Bread, but seriously, it’s soooo good, and really adds to this bread being a special treat for a special person! Spoon frosting (or glaze) onto warm bread that has cooled for at least 30 minutes.
I love to fancy this bread up with adorable Sparkling Sugared Cranberries (recipe coming soon), cute ribbon, and a few sprigs of fresh clipped rosemary herb (it has that piney, holiday look to it).
This lovely recipe is just perfect for Christmastime baking with it’s bright colors and flavors.
