Cranberry Clementine Almond Bread

I have been on a cranberry kick, first the Cranberry Sauce and now this moist delicious Cranberry Bread. I have always thought that another type of berry, okay it's color is blue, has the highest antioxidants than other fruit, but I was wrong, cranberries are the highest by 1.96%. Well I'll be darn. Anywho, they are a healthy treat, so have two pieces of bread!! For this bread you will need, flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, salt, 4 Clementine's, 1 egg, vegetable oil, cranberries and sliced dry toasted almonds (unsalted).

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Squeeze Clementines for their juice.

Add clementine juice and throw in another clementine if you are tired of juicing like me!

Beat an egg.

Add egg and grated Clementine peel to dry mixture. Blend well.

Add Cranberries.

Add almonds, mix well.

Mix all ingredients well.

Grease a loaf pan.

Spread batter evenly in loaf pan.

Place on baking sheet to prevent dripping in the oven. Bake at 350 degrees F for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow bread to cool on rack before taking it out of dish.

Nice transfer.

Allow bread to cool completely before glazing.

Glaze away!

This is an easy recipe that is moist and delicious. The cranberries are full of flavor and the clementines add the perfect zest in addition to the almonds crunchiness, great combination.

A slice is a perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea.

Great bread, and it's clementines, not oranges. I like the subtle flavor switch from most recipes. I'll be trying this one out. Pinning your recipe.

I think Blogger might have swallowed my comment so ... Take 2:

I like that you switched to clementine instead of the more often seen orange. Subtle flavor difference, but nice. And almonds too. Yum. I'm pinning this recipe. I love to make my own bread and this quick one sounds delicious.
