by Beverly Lynn Bennett & Ray Sammartano
Sweet, tart, and festive could best describe this quick bread made with ruby-red cranberries and orange juice and zest.
Prep time: 5 to 7 minutes
Cook time: 30 to 35 minutes
Yield: 1 loaf
Serving size: 1 slice


• 2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
• 2 tsp. baking powder
• 1/4 tsp. baking soda
• 1/4 tsp. sea salt
• Juice and zest of 1 orange
• 1/3 cup plus 1 TB. soy milk or other nondairy milk of choice
• 1/4 cup agave nectar
• 1/4 cup safflower oil
• 1¼ tsp. pure vanilla extract
• 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
• 1 cup vegan powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly oil a 8x4x2½-inch loaf pan.

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add orange juice and zest, 1/3 cup soy milk, agave nectar, safflower oil, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and stir gently to combine. Fold in cranberries.
