  • 1 3/4 c. Cup 4 Cup flour blend (You can use any all purpose gluten free flour blend)
  • 1 c. sugar (You can use coconut sugar, but know that your batter & bread will be much darker)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 c. shortening (any kind)
  • 1 c. orange juice
  • 1 Tbs. grated orange rind
  • 1 egg or 1 Tbs. flax meal mixed into 3 Tbs. warm water
  • 1 c. cramberries, chopped if they're big


  • 1/2 c. chopped nuts (I usually tend to leave nuts out of my cranberry bread)


I purchased a bag of Cup4Cup flour blend recently and have had good results with my baking. Interested in looking into it? Here's their website: I will say that the blend has milk powder in it, so if you're dairy-free or vegan, then this is not a good blend for you.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees & grease a loaf pan.
2. Mix dry ingredients. With a pastry cutter or fork, cut in shortening until the shortening and dry ingredients are well blended and the shortening is in pea-sized pieces.
3. Fold in egg or egg replacement, orange juice, orange zest and nuts (if using).
4. Scoop into loaf pan and spread evenly.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour. I like my bread really moist and pound cake-like, so I tend to turn the oven off about 50 minutes in and let the bread stay in the oven until the oven isn't hot anymore.
