For the cake

For the glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-x-5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray. Line the bottom with a rectangle of parchment. Dust the sides with flour and remove the excess.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the cranberries in a food processor until they are coarsely chopped. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange zest.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk the orange juice, kefir, butter, egg, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until blended (don’t over-mix). Fold in the cranberries.
  5. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan and bake for 45-55 minutes. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Remove cake to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. 
  7. Place the cake, still on the cooling rack, over a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Drizzle the cake with the glaze and let it stand until glaze is hardened about 30 minutes.
