Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups frozen cranberries or fresh
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease with baking spray a 9"x5" bread pan. Add parchment paper, leaving a bit more on the sides to use as handles to lift the bread from the pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, buttermilk, sour cream, orange zest, oil, egg and vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk just until combined.
  6. In a small bowl, toss the frozen cranberries with a tablespoon of cornstarch to coat. Fold into the batter.
  7. Pour the bread batter into the prepared bread pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the bread should come out clean.
  8. Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes, then lift the bread up and place onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar, orange juice, zest, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Mix until it is smooth with no lumps.
  10. Once the bread is cool, spread the glaze on top of the bread. Slice and serve.
