Vegan Cranberry Orange Bread

YIELD: 9”x5” loaf
Vegan Cranberry Orange Bread



  • 3/4 cup Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm, puréed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 2 1/2 cups baking flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce, drained
  • 1 cup cranberries, whole or halved


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • Orange zest



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line loaf pan with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.
  2. To purée tofu, process in a blender until smooth and no lumps remain. Use 3/4 cup for this recipe and refrigerate remaining tofu.
  3. In a medium bowl, add all wet ingredients including puréed tofu, then mix well.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. 
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
  6. Fold in cranberry sauce and cranberries until just combined. Do not over-mix!
  7. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  8. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and cool in loaf pan for 10 minutes, then cool completely on wire rack.


  1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Drizzle on top of cooled bread.


  • Refrigerate leftover puréed tofu. Can be used for smoothies, chocolate mousse, and many other recipes!
  • Fully cooled bread will be easier to slice.
  • Leftover bread should be refrigerated. Deliciously moist when reheated in microwave!
  • PLANT-BASED: This recipe uses only plant-based ingredients. Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm takes the place of eggs and gives this bread a moist crumb while adding plant-based protein.
  • GLUTEN-FREE: We used gluten-free 1-to-1 baking flour with great results! Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm is Certified Gluten Free.

Hi Blanca, we have not tried substituting coconut oil with olive oil, but that should work as well! :)

Hi! What a great daughter you are! One of our favorite tofu cookbooks is The Art of Tofu by Akasha Richmond. You can find it on Amazon:

About the baked recipes: banana bread or cranberry orange bread:
I would like to know if I can substitute the coconut oil by olive oil.

I am going to start to cook with tofu.

Thank you

My mom is looking for tofu recipes, but she is 90 yrs old and does not have or know how to use a computer. She is very independent and still cooks on her own. Is there anyway that you have a cookbook I can buy for her and have it sent to her please?

Thank you
Her Daughter
