Cranberry Orange Bread

Every year I make this yummy moist tangy quick bread. Freezes well and makes a nice gift.

Cranberry-Orange Bread

3 medium oranges

1 beaten egg

2 T cooking oil

2 c. flour

3/4 c sugar

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 c. chopped fresh or frozen cranberries

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

1 c. sifted powder sugar

Grease one 8x4x2 in. loaf pan or three 6x3x2

Shred the peel from one orange

Juice all oranges

Combine 3/4 c. of the juice the other 1/4 cup is for the glaze

1 tsp of the peel, egg and oil. Stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and soda. Add the orange mixture, stir just till moistened. Fold in cranberries and walnuts. Bake at 350 degree oven for 50-60 min for larger loaf and 30-40 min for smaller loaf. Cool.


Blend 1 T orange juice with powdered sugar. Add rest of orange zest. Drizzle back and forth across loaves. Makes 1 large or 3 small loaves. If you make this let me know. This can be all done in a food processor too. You know chop the cranberries add sugar and wet ingredients then the dry.

I like the Christma theme on your blog. This looks like a great holiday treat, I'm glad to know that it freezes well.
