Keto Cranberry Orange Bread Recipe
I used the base recipe for my lemon blueberry bread to make this yummy moist Keto Cranberry orange bread recipe and it translated really well and didn’t disappoint at all.
The only difference is that I increased the egg by 1 and reduced the sour cream from two-thirds of a cup to half cup and it came out amazing.
Don’t get me wrong. Both recipes are amazing. I just enjoy playing around with recipes to create options for you guys. If it doesn’t work out you never get to hear about it ha! ha! That’s called Recipe testing.
