To Make the Bread

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F, and grease a 9 x 5 – inch loaf pan. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Set aside.2 cups all-purpose flour1 teaspoon baking powder½ teaspoon salt
  • In a separate small bowl, use a spoon to mix the sugar and orange zest until the sugar becomes light orange in color. Set aside.1 cup granulated sugar1 tablespoon orange zest
  • Take a third large bowl and whisk the buttermilk, oil, orange juice, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and the orange zest/sugar mixture, and whisk until just combined. Don’t overmix!½ cup buttermilk½ cup canola oil½ cup orange juice2 large eggs1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Next, add the cranberries and use a wooden spoon or spatula to stir until well incorporated.1 ½ cups fresh cranberries
  • Transfer the batter to the greased loaf pan. Place in the oven and baked for 65-75 minutes. If the bread begins to brown too quickly, place a piece of aluminum foil loosely over the top to prevent burning.
  • The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a very light crumb. Remove the bread from the oven and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before transferring from the pan to a cooling rack.

To Make the Glaze

  • While the bread cools, make the glaze.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the powdered sugar and orange juice. 1 cup powdered sugar2 to 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • Whisk or use a hand mixer on low until the glaze is smooth and creamy. Adjust the amount of orange juice to reach desired consistency.
  • After the bread cools completely, drizzle the glaze over the top, slice, and serve.
