  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • grated peel of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  In another bowl, beat egg; add orange juice, peel, butter and hot water.  Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.  Gently fold in cranberries and walnuts.  Spoon onto a greased 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool loaf for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.

Yield:  1 loaf (16 servings)
