Orange Cranberry Bread with White Chocolate Pecan Glaze ~ This week I am all about Texas citrus. One, to hopefully keep everyone healthy this holiday season –– believe me, we’ve had those holidays where we all try to avoid that one sick kiddo coughing up a storm in the house (or worse!) and it’s no fun. AND two, because … well, I just love fresh citrus of any kind –– before coffee came along I was a big glass of o.j. in the morning kinda girl. Along with the sweet tang of the season, I also become attracted to white chocolate. It’s not my go-to chocolate of choice, in fact I love the complete opposite –– dark chocolate –– but for some reason in the month of December it becomes a favorite.
One of the many things that I adore about this time of the year is giving food as gifts. There’s no greater way to share the love with your people than with a delicious treat, am I right? I made this sweet delight and while the smells warmed up the house, the little hands came around looking for a morsel to try –– just imagine this photo shoot. This Orange Cranberry Bread with White Chocolate Pecan Glaze is one such gift-worthy goodie during these festive times. Cranberries popping alongside sweet tangy orange bread then smothered in nutty, white chocolate pecan glaze might even be good enough to leave out for St. Nick, that is, if you don’t eat it all first.
