Cranberry Walnut Bread

2014-11-27 13.59.46I’m a big fan of tradition, and this has been a Thanksgiving tradition for several years now.  My friend Lori gave me the recipe, and my Mother-In-Law requests it every year for Thanksgiving, so I make it every year with pride!  I usually double the recipe and make 2 loaves because it’s great for breakfast in the morning.  Put a slice in the toaster oven then smother it with butter and you’re good to go!


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • grated zest from one large orange
  • juice from one large orange
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh cranberries
  • 1 1/4 cups of crushed walnuts

If the batter seems too thick, add a touch of water.

Pour the batter into a lightly greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour.  Baking times might have to be adjusted depending on your oven and your altitude.

Let cool for 15 minutes then turn over and gently shake from the pan.
