Prep: 20 min. Bake: 65 min. plus cooling Yield: 16 Servings
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup fresh or frozen halved cranberries
1/4 cup apricot preserves
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, orange peel, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a small bowl, beat egg, water and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the cranberries.
Pour into a greased and floured 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Cut apricots in the preserves into small pieces; spoon preserves over batter. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.

That looks splendid. May plenty of joy emerge from your kitchen

I am sure that is delicious. But even if it weren't, it's enough just to sit there looking beautiful. Look at the color and texture!
Thanks for stopping in at Cranberry Morning. 🙂
I love bread recipes like these!
This sounds so good! =)
No wonder all the mini loafs disappeared quickly. I could eat one loaf by myself. It looks soooooooooo tempting. Great colors and wonderful combination of flavors

Our daughter left a bag of cranberries in our refrigerator when she visited and I was not sure what to do with them. Now I know. Thank you so much!

This looks lovely…thanks for the recipe!
Like Barbara's, my cranberry bread includes orange (juice and zest). I think that the addition of apricot jam sounds wonderful! Another recipe to try… 😀
Mmmmm, looks de-lish!
