This is a recipe I grew up with at Thanksgiving and Christmas and continue to make for my family. It's a great treat to share with friends and neighbors. We enjoy Cranberry Bread slightly warm with a light spreading of whipped cream cheese.
Yield: 1 loaf
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup orange juice
1 egg, well beaten
1-1/2 cups fresh cranberries, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon grated orange peel (I use Spice Islands Orange Peel)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven of 350F.
Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in medium mixing bowl.
Stir in orange juice, oil, orange peel, and egg. Mix until blended.
Stir in cranberries and nuts (optional).
Spread evenly in loaf pan.
Bake 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool on rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely.
