This flavorful and easy recipe for the BEST Cranberry Orange Bread came from the Kindergarten Cooking Program at School. The mother of our Kindergarten teacher brought the recipe and ingredients in to school, and made it with the kids there in the classroom. My picky daughter even ate a slice… even though it was full of “things”.Those “things” are cranberries, and if you are a cranberry lover, you will adore this recipe. It’s chock full of fresh AND dried cranberries. It’s super easy to make….. no special equipment required (hey! Kindergartners made this in a classroom… you can handle this). So it’s perfect for this crazy Holiday Season.
