  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips melted
  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bread pan with non-stick cooking spray. Line with parchment paper for extra security.

  • In a large bowl, add in butter and granulated sugar. Mix on medium until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs, vanilla, orange zest, and orange juice and mix on low until combined.
  • In a separate bowl, sift in the baking powder, baking soda, and flour. Add in the flour and milk and mix on low until incorporated.
  • Add in 1/2 cup of the pistachios and all of the cranberries.
  • Filling
  • In a large microwave safe bowl, microwave the white chocolate chips in 30 second intervals. Stir the chocolate chips and microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir. The chocolate should be completely melted.
  • Add in the cream cheese, egg, and sugar. Mix on medium until thoroughly incorporated.


  • Pour half of the bread batter into the bottom of the prepared loaf pan.
  • Pour all of the filling on top of the batter.
  • Pour the remaining batter over top of the cream cheese filling.
  • Add the remaining 1/4 cup of chopped pistachios to the top of the batter
  • Place in the 350 degree oven for 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour 20 minutes or until done. Place a toothpick in the center of the bread, if it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs it's done. If it still has batter on it, let it go for a few more minutes and then test it again.
