A delicious twist on a summer classic–zucchini bread with a hint of lemon and orange, accented by dried cranberries. My husband just raves about it!
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease two 8x4-inch loaf pans.
Combine flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a small bowl. Beat eggs with sugar in a large bowl until well mixed; beat in oil. Stir zucchini, cranberries, orange zest, and lemon extract into egg mixture. Add cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt, and ginger. Stir flour mixture into zucchini mixture until batter is well blended. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

The quality of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as clear bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
