Add this super tasty bread for a hearty breakfast!
Prep Time: 20mins. ❖ Bake Time: 35-45mins. ❖ Serves: 10-12
- 2 C. all-purpose flour
- ½ C. sugar
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- 2-½ tsp. baking powder
- 1 Tbsp. orange zest
- ½ C. chopped almonds (or pecans/ walnuts, if you prefer)
- ¾ C. dried cranberries or 1-½ C. fresh
- 1 tsp. orange extract
- ½ C. orange juice
- 2 Tbsp. canola oil
- 1 egg
- 1 can (12oz.) Mandarin orange segments
Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare large bundt pan or two 9” loaf pans by misting with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients until thoroughly mixed.
Combine first 5 wet ingredients in a blender and mix until cranberries are chopped into small bits. Then, add Mandarin orange segments & pulse just until segments are broken.
Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until flour disappears...do not over mix!
Gently pour batter into greased pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350℉. Then, reduce oven temperature to 325℉. Continue baking until lightly browned–about 15 additional minutes.
