With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Cranberry Orange Cornbread

Cranberry Orange Cornbread

I wasn't planning on baking Saturday morning, but when this recipe showed up in my email inbox I knew it would be a great breakfast treat. I love cornbread, cranberries and orange and this quick bread has all three. It hit the spot before a day of chores. I made it extra special by spreading with a little orange marmalade ~ so good!

PRINT RECIPE
Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 35 minutes | Servings: 10

INGREDIENTS

1 navel orange
2 large eggs
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal (stone-ground is best)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup fresh cranberries

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 375ºF. Coat an 8-inch-by-4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

Grate zest from 1/2 of the orange into a large bowl. Cut the orange in half and squeeze in all of the juice. Whisk in eggs, buttermilk, oil, sugar, brown sugar, and salt until blended. Scatter baking powder over the top, and let stand until foamy, about 3 minutes.
Stir together cornmeal, flour, and cranberries, and add them to the wet ingredients, stirring just until batter is almost free of lumps.

Spoon into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool on a rack.

Panera TIP: If you don’t have fresh cranberries, use blueberries or raspberries instead.

Three of my favorite flavors, too. I have made cornbread with fresh blueberries. I have cranberries in my freezer, too, hmmmm I see one of these in my future. xo

Just a little something from Judy said...

I like cranberries and I like cornbread, so I know I will like this recipe. Thank you for sharing it, especially in the beautiful style that you always do.

Winnie said...

It looks wonderful and colorful.
As it's impossible to get fresh cranberry here, do you think I could use dried cranberry? Maybe I should soak them first it hot water or brandy?

Lorraine, these look delicious! I love that combination of flavors too. Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment...I enjoyed hearing from you. We went shopping most of the day, and I enjoyed browsing in an Antique shop the most. If only I had room here for an antique baby cradle that I fell in love with. oh well, it doesn't cost a thing to admire it! Have a nice evening...
