  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg, orange juice and orange zest. Blend into the dry mixture. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts. Transfer to the loaf pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven 65 to 70 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted at center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, remove to wire rack and cool completely before serving.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I could not find fresh or frozen cranberries anywhere. I instead used dried cranberries. The orange-cranberry combination of this bread is heavenly. I did, however, find it to be somewhat dry...

Very good and easy. I didn't have an orange for zest so just used a little extra oj and it seemed orangey enough and moist. Also did not have to bake for whole time - was done about 10 minutes e...

This was very good. Better if you make it a day or so ahead and let the flavors blend. Excellent when you slice it and toast it and spread some cream cheese over it for a breakfast bread with ...
