The best cranberry bread recipe loaded with fresh cranberries, ricotta cheese, vanilla and extra virgin olive oil, then finished with a crispy streusel topping.
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 mixture looks like wet sand. Move quickly so the butter doesn’t melt. Sprinkle over the cranberry bread dough.
Grand Marnier Glaze:
Whisk together 1 c powder sugar + 1/4 c grand marnier.
Whisk 1 c 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.
