Orange Cranberry Bread

This is one of those recipes from childhood that always make me happy this time of year. And since it freezes so well, it actually makes me deliriously happy this time of year.  I love Christmas baking you can do so far in advance. Trust me,  it makes it easier when I’m up to my elbows in cookie dough a couple of days before Christmas. I know, I know, there are plenty of cookies that can be frozen, too, but there’s just something about the smell of cookies in the house that just says Christmas to me.

 

ORANGE CRANBERRY BREAD

What you will need:

2 cups sifted flour

1 cup sugar

1.5 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 egg, beaten

Zest of one medium orange

3/4 cup orange juice

1 cup walnuts or almonds

2 cups cranberries

 

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare two loaf pans.

In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda together. In medium bowl, mix melted butter, beaten egg, orange juice and orange zest together.  Gradually add liquid ingredients to dry, making sure to incorporate all ingredients well. Add nuts and cranberries, mix through evenly.

Spoon batter into prepared pans and bake for 60 – 70 minutes.
