  • One large bread pan, or 4 mini bread pans


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 3 cups Einkorn flour, or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 small orange, peeled and chopped


  • Preheat oven to 400° F.
  • Prepare one large bread pan, or 4 mini bread pans, by greasing well, or lining with parchment.
  • Add eggs, milk, juice, and oil to a large mixing bowl, and mix well.
  • To another bowl, add the dry ingredients - flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients in the large mixing bowl, and mix gently until well incorporated.
  • Fold in cranberries, nuts, and chopped orange, stirring gently until evenly distributed.
  • Spoon into bread pans. This recipe makes one large loaf, or about 4 miniature loaves.
  • Bake until loaves are golden brown, and centers are firm - about 25 minutes for mini loaves, about 40-45 minutes for a large loaf.
  • Remove from oven, and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan, and serving.
