Ingredients:

For the Bread:

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries (if using frozen, do not thaw)

For the Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest

Instructions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, mix together the unsweetened applesauce, Greek yogurt, orange juice, orange zest, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Fold in Cranberries:
    • Gently fold in the cranberries until evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  6. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread it out evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Glaze:
    • Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    • While the bread is cooling, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, orange juice, and orange zest until smooth.
  8. Drizzle Glaze:
    • Once the bread has cooled, drizzle the glaze over the top of the loaf.
  9. Slice and Serve:
    • Slice the bread into thick slices and serve at room temperature. Enjoy the delicious combination of cranberry and orange flavors!
