In another mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, orange zest, vanilla, and buttermilk. Mix at high speed with an electric mixer for about 10 minutes or until pale and creamy.

Now, add in the flour mixture and beat until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add cranberries, gently fold to combine.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40-50 min or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Note: This moist cranberry orange bread was made without orange juice. If you would like to add some, you may add about 1/2 a cup but you would have to add another 1/4 cup of oat or gluten-free flour.

Does Cranberry Bread need to be refrigerated

Cranberry bread can be left on the counter at room temperate for the first 2 days. Just cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. After the initial two days, it’s best to store your leftover cranberry bread tightly wrapped or in a container in the fridge. The cranberry can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days. Simply reheat in the microwave if needed.

Can you substitute dried cranberries for fresh

The beauty of making cranberry bread is that you can use any cranberries you have on hand. You may use fresh, frozen or dried cranberries.

Do you have to cook cranberries before baking

No. You don’t have to cook cranberries before baking. Cranberries will give the bread, muffins, or whatever you are baking that tart and juicy flavor.

How long do fresh cranberries last

If refrigerated, fresh cranberries will last 3-4 weeks in their original packaging or a Ziploc bag. Fresh cranberries can be frozen for up to 1 year.

Can you freeze cranberry bread

Tightly wrap or place your cranberry bread in an airtight container and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to use, let it thaw in the fridge the night before and then slice and reheat as needed.
