When I was getting ready to come home to the float cabin, I needed to prepare some things for Mom and her helpers to eat. Of course, we made breakfast bran muffins. I also made two Cranberry Orange Nut Bread. I used this recipe from allrecipes.com.
Cranberry Orange Nut Bread
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup chopped cranberries
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon orange zest
Mix together the egg, oil, orange juice, and orange zest. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until just blended. Mix in cranberries and nuts.
Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan (or two smaller ones) and spoon in the batter. Bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan(s) and cool completely.
