  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.
  3. In a 1-cup (or larger) measuring cup combine juice and zest of the orange, butter and enough boiling water to reach 3/4 cup. Stir into flour mixture. Fold in egg, walnuts and cranberries. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. To make the icing combine confectioners' sugar, butter, orange juice and milk; add more milk if necessary so that the icing is thin and slightly runny. Drizzle over bread; allow icing to set before slicing.

Everyone loved this recipe! We couldn't wait to get it out of the oven, it smelled so good! I substituted pecans for the walnuts, we'll make this several times a year, not just around the holida...

I found it awfully dry for my taste. Looked nice but ended up throwing most of it away.

This recipe is as fantastic as it is easy. I made it as gifts for Christmas, and everyone raved and wanted the recipe. My husband calls it "crack in a pan." I made it without the frosting and di...

I only made a few adjustments (I always try to make a bit healthier): whole wheat flour, 3/4 cup of dk brown sugar (I just prefer the taste), about 2 tablespoons of Smart Balance spread for the ...

This recipe is Wonderful. I made it for a Christmas party and every one loved it. I did make a few of the modifications mentioned in the Review written November 25, 2006. by Amanda Cornelius...

Really good especially as a not too sweet dessert. I used frozen cranberries as fresh were not available. They worked just fine.

I made this for a pregnant neighbor who was craving cranberry walnut bread. It made everyone happy! Great recipe.
