This recipe is from the most "stained" page of my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. I can't even imagine how expensive the cranberries are going to be this year, but it will be worth it for this bread. I always triple the recipe and give the bread as gifts during the holidays. It is so pretty and so delicious!


  • 2 cups white flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated orange peel
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 Tbs. salad oil
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cranberries (I use the food processor)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • Combine egg, grated orange peel, orange juice and salad oil.
  • Add to dry ingredients.
  • Stir until just moistened.
  • Fold in cranberries and walnuts.
  • Bake in greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan at 350 degrees for 60 minutes or till done.
  • Remove from pan. Cool. Wrap. Store overnight before cutting.
  • Stores very well in the freezer. Wrap in foil and store in ZipLoc bag.
  • Wonderful toasted in the toaster!
