Cranberry Pecan Orange Honey Bread

WOW this breakfast or sweet bread has it all!! Cranberries, pecans, orange and honey, what’s not to love about this?

Well, actually my husband is not a big fan. He calls this “woman” bread. hahaha guess it’s not manly enough.

This bread is delicious when first made but I really like it the next day, take a slice, toast it and add butter. Man oh man, it is fantastic. I eat this with a cup of hot herbal tea and I’m set.

It is super easy and healthy. Maybe that is why he isn’t a fan.

Healthy because of all the vitamins, antioxidants and fresh ingredients. Fresh like my freshly milled flour with my mill from GrainMillWagon. Have I told you how much I love this mill? It is the best!

Here is how I made the bread: (Oh I cheat, I use my bread machine)


Cranberry Pecan Orange Honey Bread
1.5 loaf setting in the bread machine and FAST BAKE setting

1 cup warm water plus 2 TBSP
2 tsp oil (vegetable, coconut or olive oil)
4 TBSP dried cranberries
4 TBSP chopped pecans
1 TBSP orange marmalade
2 TBSP cranberry honey (you can use regular honey)
1 tsp salt
3 cups flour (whole wheat freshly milled is what I used)
1 pkg quick rise yeast

Place the ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed. set, leave alone, cool, slice and enjoy!

Grain Mill Challenge Experience: Recently I was chosen to be part of a challenge. I had the awesome opportunity to try out the WonderMill grain mill and blog my experiences. I am in love with this mill. It is super easy to use and having my own fresh milled flour is such a benefit for a food blogger like myself. My goal this year has been to be healthier. Using a mill helps me meet this goal. I don't have to worry or wonder about what is in my flour. Working with Brent and The WonderMill company has been a joy. If you are in the market for a mill, I highly suggest this one and if you are a blogger looking for a great company to work with, contact them and enter the challenges. This has truly been a wonderful experience.
