Day 275: Cranberry Bread

This is the moistest cranberry bread ever! It's sweetened only with maple syrup or honey. Perfect for a batch of fresh-baked bread in the morning, or for a snack.

If you want a lemon cranberry bread, substitute the milk for 1/3 cup lemon juice. If you want an orange cranberry bread, substitute the milk for 1/3 cup orange juice and 1 tablespoon orange zest.

This is a quick bread. Quick breads get their name as they don't need to time to rise. But they do take more time than muffins.

I like to bake this bread for about 45-50 minutes. The edges should be medium dark brown, and a skewer should have no crumbs.

I can't describe how utterly fabulous this cranberry quick bread tastes like! It's healthy and a one-bowl recipe.


|Level: 👩🏽‍🍳|Time: 1 hour|Serves: 4-6|



  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or honey

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup fresh or dried up cranberries


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Combine all your ingredients together in a large bowl. The batter will be thick. Grease a 9x5" loaf pan with butter or use parchment paper.

  2. Pour the batter into the pan and smooth the top of the bread with a spatula. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick/skewer comes out clean.
