Cranberry Goodness


Fall is the best time for making cranberry nut bread, at least it is for me.  I love when I walk into the grocery store and see the cranberries in the produce section.  I always snatch one up and bake some bread right when I get home.

My recipe is from my sister and I do not know where she obtained it.  I altered it to my tastes and habits (like doubling it so I use up the entire cranberry package)


Cranberry Nut Bread

preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Makes two loaves.

3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt                            mix these ingredients in a large bowl.

To the dry ingredients cut with pastry cutter 6 tbsp of  softened butter (or margarine).

In separate bowl,  mix:  1 1/8 cup  orange juice
                                    2 eggs.

Add orange juice/eggs into flour-butter mixture.

fold in one entire bag of cranberries (2+ cups?) chopped through food processor and 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use almonds or walnuts).

divide batter evenly between two loaf pans and bake for 50 minutes to an hour.  bread is done when a knife inserted into center comes out clean.

  2. sounds yummy yummy yummy. My "fall bread" is always pumpkin, but for some reason this year my grocery store doesn't have any canned pumpkin (I could, of course, cook my own....but!!) so I think I'm going for the cranberry!! Thanks for the recipe.
