Cranberry & Orange Sweet Bread

One of my favorite parts of this bread is fresh orange citrus flavor mixed with sweet cranberries! Greek yogurt makes it extra moist too! This makes the perfect breakfast bread or snack during the Holidays!

  • 1 c. butter softened
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. white sugar
  • 4 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 T. almond extract
  • 2 c. Greek yogurt plain or vanilla
  • 16 oz. whole cranberry sauce
  • 4 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. soda
  • zest of one orange reserve one teaspoon for glaze
  • Orange Glaze
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 T. butter softened
  • 1 t. orange zest
  • orange juice enough to get the right consistency


  • Cream butter and sugars together.
  • Add beaten eggs, almond extract, Greek yogurt and cranberry sauce. Stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl add flour, salt, soda and orange zest. Add to wet ingredients. Stir only until incorporated. Don't over beat!
  • Pour into two large, well greased bread pans. This recipe can also be made in a bundt pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes. Do the toothpick test to check to see if it is done. I covered mine with aluminum foil to prevent over browning during the last 10-15 minutes of baking. Adjust baking time if using a bundt pan.
  • To make the glaze mix together powdered sugar, orange zest and butter, Add orange juice as needed to thin the glaze to the perfect consistency.
  • Cool bread and drizzle glaze over the top of loaves.
