How to Make Cranberry Orange Babka.

For this easy babka recipe, you must first prepare the dough. Knead all ingredients together and let rise at room temperature or in a warm place for about an hour until doubled in size.

Meanwhile, prepare the cranberry and orange filling. It’s quick and easy and takes no longer than 10 minutes. I like to sift the cranberry sauce for a smooth filling, but feel free to puree it or leave it as is.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a rectangle. Spread the cranberry and orange filling evenly, leaving a border of about 1 inch around the edges. Roll out the dough and cut the stem in half lengthways with a sharp knife.

Carefully braid the two pieces and place the braided bread in a loaf tin lined with parchment paper. Cover with a kitchen towel, leave to rest and let rise at room temperature for another 20-30 minutes. During this time, preheat the oven.

Bake for about 45 minutes until done. I recommend covering the babka with aluminum foil after the first 15-20 minutes of baking.

Allow to cool completely before slicing. I hope you will try this amazing Cranberry Orange Babka, tag me on Instagram if you do and enjoy as much as we do.
