Cranberry Orange Cornbread Recipe
Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 35 minutes | Servings: 10
- 1 navel orange
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal (stone-ground is best)
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup fresh cranberries
Heat oven to 375ºF. Coat an 8-inch-by-4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
Grate zest from 1/2 of the orange into a large bowl. Cut the orange in half and squeeze in all of the juice. Whisk in eggs, buttermilk, oil, sugar, brown sugar, and salt until blended. Scatter baking powder over the top, and let stand until foamy, about 3 minutes.
Stir together cornmeal, flour, and cranberries, and add them to the wet ingredients, stirring just until batter is almost free of lumps.
Spoon into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool on a rack.
Panera TIP: If you don’t have fresh cranberries, use blueberries or raspberries instead.

This sounds so good. I'm a cranberry fan, too, and still have several bags in the freezer.

Nice looking cornbread.
Maggie Ann says
Lorraine, these look delicious! I love that combination of flavors too. Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a comment…I enjoyed hearing from you. We went shopping most of the day, and I enjoyed browsing in an Antique shop the most. If only I had room here for an antique baby cradle that I fell in love with. oh well, it doesn't cost a thing to admire it! Have a nice evening…

I know I would love this, too. I just opened a far of orange marmalade this morning…just fruit, no sugar! Oh my it is GOOD! Enjoy your weekend!
P.S. your picture would make a beautiful note card!! I love it.
What a beautiful picture and a delicious recipe for bread, Lorraine. I love cranberry and orange together, but have never had it in cornbread. What a treat!!
Oh this is so pretty, and I just love the flavors – beautiful recipes and site – so glad to find you!

This looks wonderful!
Just the recipe to use my leftover cranberries. And the weather is perfect for baking today, cold and dreary
Maple Lane says
A unique recipe and it sounds delicious.
I've always liked cornbread and with the cranberries it looks extra good
This is a must try recipe for me, Lorraine. I am now copying it, looks so delicious.
Thanks for sharing.
Happier Than a Pig in Mud says
Looks beautiful! I'll bet it's great:@)
It looks wonderful and colorful.
As it's impossible to get fresh cranberry here, do you think I could use dried cranberry? Maybe I should soak them first it hot water or brandy?
Just a little something from Judy says
I like cranberries and I like cornbread, so I know I will like this recipe. Thank you for sharing it, especially in the beautiful style that you always do.
Barbara F. says
Three of my favorite flavors, too. I have made cornbread with fresh blueberries. I have cranberries in my freezer, too, hmmmm I see one of these in my future. xo
I'm just starting to enjoy the orange or leman and cranberry combo and with corn bread it looks good! I'll keep this one! Thanks! And thanks for your kind thoughts.
Does THAT look good, Loraine!!! I have never had cornbread with anything added to it except corn. I will give this a try. xo Diana
