Cranberry Walnut Loaf with Orange Glaze

Cranberry Walnut Loaf with Orange Glaze - close up

Fresh cranberries make this loaf pop! And, it tastes even better once the glaze is hardened and clinging to the cake. Yum.




  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and butter a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar into a bowl and stir in the orange zest.
  3. Place the egg, milk, orange juice and melted butter in another bowl and whisk to combine then add to the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  4. Fold in the cranberries and walnuts and turn the batter into the loaf pan.
  5. Bake for 1 hour or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove and cool on a rack.
  6. Place the icing sugar, orange juice, zest and butter in a bowl and whisk until smooth. 
  7. Set the loaf on a serving platter and drizzle the glaze over it. Decorate with additional (longer) strands of orange zest if desired.
