  • 2-3 oranges
  • 1 ruby red grapefruit
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil


  • Prepare two 9x5 loaf pans with parchment paper or with cooking spray and dusting with flour.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Zest 2 oranges and set zest aside. Juice oranges and the grapefruit. Collect enough juice to measure 1-1/2 cups. Add water if you don't have enough juice.
  • Heat juice over medium heat until steaming then remove from heat and stir in sugar until dissolved. Then stir in canola oil.
  • In a large bowl mix together flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in zest and berries. Then stir in orange juice mixture into dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Evenly divide batter between the two loaf pans. Place in the oven on a middle rack and bake until crust is golden brown and crisp. About 45-50 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and let cool completely
