Cranberry Nut Bread Recipe
Yield: Serves 8.
2 cups flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
3/4 cup granulated sugar (I cut this amount in half and sub applesauce for the rest)
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (I don’t like nuts and therefore don’t add this)
1 cup chopped cranberries
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup butter, melted. (I cut that amount in about half and sub applesauce for the rest, you could also sub Greek yogurt)
1 egg, beaten
1 Tbsp grated orange peel
1 Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
2 Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped cranberries and walnuts to coat with the flour mixture.
3 Mix together orange juice, sugar, butter, egg, and orange peel. Add to flour, cranberry, nut mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until just blended.
4 Pour into a greased 9×5 or 8×4 loaf pan. Bake at 350°F for 55 to 60 minutes or until done (a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean).
5 Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
