Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup J.Olive Co. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar organic
  • 2 large eggs organic, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour organic
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup cranberries (fresh organic)
For the Streusel Topping
  • 4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tbsp granulated sugar organic
  • 3 Tbsp cold or frozen butter

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 “F
  • In a mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, olive oil, vanilla, sugar, sea salt and ricotta cheese. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add it to the bowl with the wet mixture. Add the cranberries and using a spatula gently fold everything together.
  • Layer a loaf pan with baking wax paper and pour in the dough.
  • Quickly make the streusel topping by combining the sugar and flour together in a small bowl. Using a cheese grater, grate the cold butter on top and mix in using your fingertips, just until the mixture looks like wet sand. Move quickly so the butter doesn’t melt.
  • Sprinkle over the cranberry bread dough.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out almost clean.

 

  • Grand Marnier Glaze: Whisk together 1 cup powder sugar + 1/4 cup grand marnier.
  • Orange Glaze: Whisk 1 cup powder sugar + 3 Tbsp orange juice + 1 Tbsp lemon juice. Combine with the zest from 1 orange and drizzle over the cranberry bread after it has cooled off completely.
