  • 2 cup All purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Dry Cranberries
  • 1 can (15 oz) Pumpkin puree
  • ⅓ cup Orange Juice
  • 113 g Soften Butter
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Tspn Baking Powder
  • ½ tspn Baking Soda
  • ¼ tspn Salt
  • 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ tspn Ground Ginger
  • ⅛ tspn ground Cloves
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Zest of One Orange

  • 1 ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Orange Juice or Water

Preheat oven to 350 ºF.

Grease and flour a 9 ¾ in round Pound Cake pan.

In a large bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and the cloves, stir well until combined and set aside.

With an electric mixer, on medium speed, mix the butter and brown sugar for about 2 minutes or until you get a creamy and grainy paste.  Then add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing each egg for 30 seconds before adding the next one.  After you add in the last egg, continue to mix for one more minute. Then add in the Pumpkin puree, mix until combined, then add in the orange zest,  the vanilla extract and the orange juice, continue to mix on medium high speed for 30 more seconds.

Reduce the speed to slow, then add in half of the flour mixture, mix on low speed for a few seconds, just so the flour will start to incorporate with the rest of the ingredients, then add in the rest of the flour, and continue to stir on low until incorporated. Then add in the Cranberries, and stir until combined. Do NOT over mix.

The batter is ready, it should be very rich and thick. Pour it into a prepared pan. Bake it at 350ºF for about 40-50 minutes or until well cooked.

You will now the bread is cooked when you insert a toothpick right in the center and it comes up with a bit of bread crumbs.

As soon as the bread comes off the oven, run a knife along the edges to separate it from the pan. Let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a plate.

Let the bread cool completely before garnishing it.

You can either dust it with Powdered sugar.  Or make a glaze to glaze it.

To make the glaze: Combined 1 ½ cup of powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons of orange juice or water, and stir well until the sugar has dissolved.

Once the bread is cold, drizzle it with the glaze on top and that’s it.
