This Cranberry Loaf with Lemon Zest Glaze is absolutely delicious! Moist, sweet and slightly tangy thanks to the tart cranberries, with a fragrant lemon zest glaze (that is only 3 ingredients! so easy!). It is perfect for breakfast this week, warmed up with some glaze or as-is with a speread of vegan butter. Greg finished the loaf himself with his morning coffees! This recipe will hopefully get you in a cheery holiday mood if you’re looking to do some stress-baking. Or even just regular baking, because baking if fun no matter the occasion!
Ahhhh, Christmas week. Only 4 days until Christmas Eve! Ugh… typing that just doesn’t have the same happy feeling to it this year. I know my friends in parts of the UK, Australia and even parts of Canada have gotten some pretty sad news recently about their Christmas. For anyone who isn’t able to be with family this year, I am sending you the BIGGEST hug. You will get through this. And take care of yourself okay? There are better days coming.
And in the mean time, bake yourself (or whoever is in your bubble!) this cranberry loaf. Its pretty, festive and better (and cheaper) than the one at your local coffee shop.
A quick note on this Cranberry Loaf
This recipe couldn’t be easier. You just mix the wet ingredients, mix the dry, stir in the cranberries and spread into your loaf tin. Then, while its baking, whip up the super easy 3 ingredient Lemon Zest Glaze, and you are done! I find the loaf is less sweet when it first comes out of the oven (hence the glaze!). But, the next day, after cooling completely and sitting overnight, it is the PERFECT amount of sweet. So much so that you don’t need the glaze to balance anything out!
