Cherry Orange Marmalade Bread

Cherry Orange Marmalade Bread is a super delicious quick bread. It’s tasty and moist with a swirl of orange marmalade running through the middle. Fast and easy, like all quick breads are known to be. For this recipe we used dried cherries but you can certainly substitute dried cranberries or no berries at all if you prefer. Serve Cherry, Orange Marmalade Bread with extra orange marmalade or orange curd.

Orange Marmalade

For this recipe you can make your own marmalade or follow our recipe for Orange Elderflower Marmalade. Another option is to purchase your favorite brand of orange marmalade. There are many wonderful brands on the market today. My favorite orange marmalade is from IKEA which also inspired me to make my own orange elderflower marmalade. Kraft also makes a super delicious Sweet Orange Marmalade that can be found at most super markets or grocery stores.
