We should create another Chobani song….hmmmm…The musicians at Cafe Terra will have to get back to you on that one.
Well, we are well on our way this year already, I have shared 18 Chobani recipes with you so far. WAIT….you have not seen one of the 18 recipes yet….
Finally, I will share with you the delicious and moist Cranberry Orange Bread. I found a beautiful Cranberry Bread recipe from one of my favorite bloggers, Anecdotes and Apple Cores. Then decided to change it around, AND include, of course, some delicious Chobani Greek Yogurt.
I did have the opportunity to be a featured blogger on Chobani, and the Cranberry Orange Bread was there. This will be the first time I actually share it here on Cafe’ Terra! When I first made the recipe, I did not have my light box yet. So I decided I would make this delicious recipe again. Wow, what a difference the light box can make!
Now I know it is sooooo much easier to get fresh cranberries during Christmas time. So I decided to experiment with this second bread I made, and use dried cranberries soaked in orange juice. I bet if I would have soaked them longer, they might have plumped up more. With the final result of the bread this time, well… the dried cranberries settled at the bottom. So I will definitely be sticking to fresh or frozen cranberries in the future. I would like to stress, the bread is still AMAZING with the dried cranberries all at the bottom! Enjoy:)
Cranberry Orange Bread Recipe:
(makes 1 large loaf / 4 mini loaves)
2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup Vanilla Chobani Greek yogurt
1 cup orange juice
1 ½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries (1 cup dried cranberries)
½ cup walnuts (optional)
Zest of 1 large orange
½ cup powdered sugar
3 Tbsp orange juice
1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a large loaf pan, or four mini loaf pans with butter, or oil. Mix together in large mixing bowl sugar, oil, Greek yogurt, and orange juice.
2. Next, in separate bowl mix flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
3. Slowly mix in dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients. Then, mix in walnuts, cranberries, and orange zest.
4. Place bread dough in pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or depending on oven for mini loaves. Bake for 45-50 minutes depending on oven for large loaf pan.
5. Let cool on wire rack. You can pour glaze over bread while still in pan, or after you have removed it from pan. (For the bread I did recently, I did not include any glaze, and it is still so most, and delicious!)
