  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (7 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (3 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (2.8 grams)
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries (120 grams), coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (120 milliliters)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (120 milliliters)
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest (from 1 large orange)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (5 milliliters)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the chopped cranberries, orange juice, vegetable oil, orange zest, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.
