Triple Lemon Poppyseed Buttermilk Quick Bread

It’s Friday, we made it! Now, let’s jump right in to this quick bread and make this, too. I have to tell you, I’m actually very ready for spring. I’m 100% a fall and winter girl, and not a huge fan of summertime heat and humidity. But there’s something about this past winter that has felt just too long. I’m ready for warmer days that have the windows open and take us outside in actually enjoyable temperatures.

I’ve really been trying to force spring over here, between wearing my espadrilles even when it’s still a tad bit chilly outside and pushing the boundaries of what’s actually in season to force some more springtime recipes in our kitchen. I’m ready for all the things to be lemon-ified! Look at us, making up words over here!

This quick bread is:

  1. Delicious, bright and cheery
  2. Somewhere between moist and not too moist
  3. Damn quick to make
  4. Not pound cake.

Cranberry Orange Quick Bread Recipe

This quick bread is one of my absolute favorites to make, mostly because every time I do my husband is super happy. It’s the little things, right? I get why he loves this one though. I don’t really make it often, but when I do, it’s always like, woah this is freaking good why don’t I make this more often? It’s the perfect balance of orange and cranberry and not too sweet and it’s so perfectly moist. I know, I hate that word too – gotta better one?

I mean can you even? Just look at those cranberries and those crumbs? Right after this, I’m warming up a slice in the oven and making a cup of coffee and relaxing.

Most of the ingredients you will have on hand to whip this up, with the exception, most likely, of the buttermilk. And after about 60 minutes, you’ll have the most delightful bread to share for breakfast or brunch or – let’s be honest – not share at all!
