I’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!
CRANBERRY WALNUT BREAD
- 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.
