Pomegranate Orange Bread

If you’re looking for a homemade treat to give to this time of year, I’ve got an idea for you today! This Pomegranate Orange Bread is easy to make and could be a nice gift for the teacher, neighbor, or bus driver on your list…and what a fun way to sneak in some antioxidant-rich foods – pomegranates are soooo good for you! I adapted Betty Crocker’s recipe here to make these mini-loaves.

Add to dry ingredients and stir until combined. Then add fresh pomegranate seeds. Need help getting those seeds out? Read this post to see how to open a pomegranate.

Fold gently.

Pour into prepared bread pans. I really like this non-stick mini loaf pan! {The bread baked up really nicely and practically fell out of the pan at the end.} Bake the mini loaves 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Yields 4 mini loaves or 1 big loaf

  1. Thanks for the giveaway. If I won I'd make all sorts of gluten free mini loaves, including a pumpkin, zucchini, and a banana loaf.
  2. If I won the pan I would use it to make all sorts of mini bread loaves... Banana, blueberry, cinnamon, Mini meatloaves... The possibilities are endless!!
  3. I would love to win this mini loaf pan. I like to make the mini loaf breads so we can enjoy one share some and freeze the rest for later enjoyment.
  4. My boys (6 and 4) love when we make banana bread in the one I have, we customize the loafs--chocolate chips, blueberries, cinnamon and sugar, craisins...it'd be great to let each of them have their own pan to work with!
  5. I would make mini lemon loaf cakes, mini french bread loaves and probably the pomegranate orange bread from the recipe you posted. Thank you for the giveaway!
  6. I would make mini loafs of bread as fun and easy Christmas gifts. Flavors could include banana chocolate chip, pumpkin pecan or blueberry walnut. Yum!
  7. ZUCCHINI BREAD ORANGE CRANBERRY BREAD OR HECK WHAT EVER BREAD I CAN FIND BUT BY MAKING MINI BREADS I CAN SHARE RECIPES EASIER OR STORE IN THE FREEZER SO I AM ONLY HAVING SMALLER PORTIONS AROUND
  8. I love to make fruit breads and give them as gifts. This would be perfect. I hope I am the lucky one... Thank you.
  9. I would love to make mini pumpkin, cinnamon, blueberry breads, pecan butter cakes, and lately I have been making meatloaves.
  10. I would love to win this as I make only the small loaves of many kinds of quick bread. I think the big ones get done on the outside and not the inside and I hate dark overbaked crusts. Thanks for the giveaway.
  11. Mini loaves would make great gift basket fillers and I would use it through out the year to make sweets for elderly or single friends...the big loaves are just too big. I'm diabetic as well, so a smaller loaf helps me keep my portion in control....thanks!
  12. I would make bananna bread and make some extra batches to freeze for quick breakfasts. No feeling like you have to eat it all that day for the freshest taste (although we can easily go through 3/4 of a loaf with 3 kids around). So many options of things to bake in a mini size
  13. I make a similar bread with cranberries and orange, but pomegranate sounds so good! I would probably try your recipe first. If i won from you i would feel obligated to :)
  14. My 2 year old daughter loves pomegranate seeds. I would love to teach her how to make this yummy bread and creating mini loaves would be just right for her size. A new holiday tradition of making pomegranate orange bread? yes indeed!
