Love cranberries? Then try this recipe. The tangy berries are tucked into orange-flavored quick bread.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries, halved
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts


  1. Lightly grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan, two 7 1/2x3-1/2x2-inch loaf pans or three 5-3/4x3x2-inch mini loaf pans.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Cut in butter or margarine until the mixture is crumbly.
  3. Add the egg, orange peel, and juice to the mixing bowl, stirring until just combined. Fold in cranberries and nuts
  4. Turn mixture into pan(s). Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes for the large loaf or 40 to 50 minutes for the small loaves or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. Cool in pan(s) on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan(s) and cool completely on wire rack. Wrap in plastic wrap. The bread is best if eaten the day after baking. Or store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
