Instructions
For the Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 9x5 loaf pan very well. Set aside.
  2. Chop cranberries in half and toss with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk flour, remaining one cup of sugar, baking soda and salt together. Fold in sugared cranberries.
  4. Make a well in the center and add buttermilk, orange juice, oil, egg and vanilla. Gently stir until fully combined.
  5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. When bread is taken out of oven, gently release the edges with a butter knife immediately to prevent any sticking. Allow bread to cool for 10 minutes in pan before inverting on a wire rack to finish cooling.
  7. While bread is cooling, prepare glaze.
For the Glaze
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk confectioner's sugar, orange juice, melted butter and vanilla until smooth. Add more or less orange juice for a thinner or thicker glaze. Pour over cooled bread.

      Hi Diane,
      You can use dried cranberries though you may want to plump them up a bit. To re-hydrate dried cranberries, measure out the cranberries and place them in a bowl. Pour enough hot water to cover the cranberries and let them sit for about 20-30 minutes. Drain the cranberries to remove excess water, and then use as you would fresh cranberries. We hope you love this recipe!
