  • Author: HoosierHomemade.com
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 1 large loaf or 3-4 mini loaves

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 cups Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons Hot Water
  • 1/2 cups Nuts, chopped finely
  • 1 1/2 cups Cranberries, chopped finely (fresh or frozen **see Note)

Instructions

  1. Sift and set aside: flour, sugar, salt, soda and baking powder.
  2. In large bowl, slightly beat egg, add juice and butter, mix.
  3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix well.
  4. Chop cranberries and nuts in food processor.
  5. Add water, nuts and cranberries to the mixture with a spatula. As with all quick breads, don’t over mix, just combine ingredients.
  6. Spray small loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 min for small and 60 min for large. Or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

If you find cranberries on sale, you can freeze them whole then use them for the bread later. When you are ready to use them, just chop them while frozen, it’s better to have a little moisture from the frozen berries. It’s kind of loud, but works just fine.
