Ingredients

  • 2/3  Cups  sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  toasted wheat germ, such as Kretschmer Original
  • 1 1/4  Cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1  Teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  salt
  • eggs
  • 3/4  Cups  fat-free milk

  • 1/4  Cup  vegetable oil
  • 1/4  Cup  fresh orange juice
  • 2  Teaspoons  orange zest
  • 1  Cup  fresh or frozen cranberries, thawed and roughly chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, wheat germ, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sour cream, oil, orange juice, and zest.

Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in the cranberries. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Bake in the middle of the oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely on a rack. Slice when ready to serve.

Cranberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
