I’m going to try my hardest and make this on Christmas morning!! Not sure it’s all that healthy but it is the one day I DO NOT CARE!! I’m sure this will be yummy and I do know I can manage baking bread like this!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg, orange juice and peel; stir into dry ingredients just until blended. Add the cranberries and walnuts.

Spoon batter into a greased and floured 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
