Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in orange zest, cranberries, and pecans. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in orange juice. Beat in flour mixture until just moistened. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the bread springs back when lightly touched. Let stand 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Wrap in plastic when completely cool.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is a delicious recipe--I poured about a 1/2 cup glaze of orange juice, powdered sugar, & vanilla over the loaf while it was still in the pan--just adds another layer of flavor to an already great mix of tart & sweet. Thanks Carol!

Oh My God! This is a beautiful bread, both in taste and aesthetic. I followed the suggestion of another reviewer and mixed up a simple glaze of orange juice, vanilla and confectioners sugar, drizzling it over the top while the loaf is still hot. Gives it a gorgeous shine, and an initial sweet taste with the after tart of the cranberry. If you're looking for a nice large loaf, for breakfast or afternoon tea...THIS IS THE ONE YOU'RE LOOKING FOR! I will never use any recipe but this from now on...not even Nana's!

Wow! I think I have ended my search for a cranberry bread recipe. This bread is just perfect, moist, relatively lowfat, and has lots of cranberries. I found that the recipe makes a large loaf that took a longer time to bake than specified. So, the next time I made it, I just doubled the batch and made 3 loaves and they baked perfectly. Also, a double batch uses exactly one bag of fresh/frozen cranberries. Another thing I did to improve the recipe was to drizzle the top with a powdered sugar icing (milk, vanilla, powdered sugar.) This icing hardened nicely, and the result was superb!
