Cranberry Orange Mini Bundts

Post image for Cranberry Orange Mini Bundts

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, I am trying to post as many holiday recipes as my stubby little fingers will type. Today’s deliciousness is a recipe for Cranberry and Orange Bread that I baked in a mini Bundt pan. Fresh cranberries are everywhere right now and I have seen them on sale at almost every grocery store in my area.

Being the baking obsessed freak that I am, I have countless bags of cranberries in the freezer just waiting to get baked into something scrumptious! I think these would also be just as good if you used lemon and blueberries… or even cherries and limes in the summer.

I am definitely going to be trying this combo soon and will report back! These mini Bundts turned out absolutely delicious and would be a perfect item for your Thanksgiving breakfast or brunch. Serve these alongside a breakfast casserole, fresh squeezed orange or mimosas and you’ll have your guests swooning!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

Orange Cranberry Mini Bundts

November 21st, 2009

Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp of vanilla extract
3/4 cup orange juice

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf or mini bundt pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar and orange zest until fragrant. Add in the margarine and mix until well combined, stir in the egg and combine until smooth. Stir in orange juice and vanilla. Beat in flour mixture until just moistened (DO NOT OVERMIX); fold in cranberries. Pour into prepared pan(s).

3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven (18-22 minutes for the mini bundts), or until the bread springs back when lightly touched. Let stand 10 minutes; turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

4. When the bread is thoroughly cooled, sprinkle on some powdered sugar or drizzle on an easy powdered sugar glaze. I simply mixed powdered sugar with orange juice to achieve the look pictured above.

Looks delicious! I don't have a bundt cake pan though, as they are all non-stick and that's not very healthy for you. Wish they had metal ones…

It looks delicious and I love baking anything mini. I'm waiting for the cranberries to go on "buy one get one" sale!

These look de-lish!
Also love your chocolate/pb bundt from last week! I'm so loving bundt more than I ever, ever did after Mary's month of bundting, that and my b-day is on Natl Bundt Day!
Just wanted to let you know I linked you on a blog post about some lemon cookies I made. They were so good! Thanks.

These ARE fantastic – I used a similar recipe including white chocolate and organic candied lemon pieces. I will definitely try this though, that syrup looks tremendously scrumptious; I'm thinking this will work well for a fundraiser I have coming up. Imagine the look on guests faces who probably expect processed ice-cream when they get an individual cranberry-orange bundt! Yummarrooo!
Will report back – if I don't NUDGE OUT OF THE KITCHEN!

Much love for your blog and food,

I just finished making applesauce minis in my mini bundt pans. Don't you love how much better they look then the full sized cakes? Cranberry and orange are a fantastic combination.

You had me at “cranberries”! I think I’ll make this for Thanksgiving treats for some of the neighbors. There are so many cranberry bread/cake recipes out there, but I know I can always count on your site to provide an original twist on old favorites. Thanks.

Hi Jamie,

Thanks! Christmas and citrus were made for each other, I think.
These look too good to eat but I’m going to give them a go this week.:)

Do you think substituting butter for margarine would work? Would it be a 1:1 ?

Many thanks!
Monica

Hi Monica,
I’ve never done it, but I believe margarine and butter are pretty interchangeable at a 1:1 ratio in baking.

Could i use dried cranberries. I have no access to fresh ones here in the south pacific? If so, how many to use? Thanks ever so

Jamie January 10, 2014 at 6:33 pm

Gillian, you sure can. Probably about half as much as the recipe calls for. Simply reconstitute them in water for an hour before adding them to the recipe. Discard the water.
