Holiday Cranberry Orange Loaf

This delicious loaf of bread is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. We love to support other local businesses and we really love Ampersand Oils. This recipe features their Blood Orange Olive Oil, and really brings out the orange flavor in the bread. Our Multi-Purpose Flour also brings the perfect texture to the recipe, you’ll love the way it crumbles in your first bite. While this bread is a great snack for any time of the day, it’s always nice to have something to grab and go for breakfast, especially during the holiday season when everyone is so busy trying to finish up last minute projects for the year.  

The flavors in this recipe are definitely unparalleled. While the cranberries help to give some texture to each bite you take, the Blood Orange Oil brings that orange flavor to the forefront and as an added bonus, gives off a beautiful citrus aroma throughout your kitchen. A great pairing would be a cup of hot apple cider!

We didn’t because the orange oil is so fantastic no additional orange required.

Hi, this recipe sounds amazing. I see an orange and a grater, do you add any zest?
