Cranberry Orange Bread

December 12, 2010
This is what Cranberry Orange Bread looks like 
if you take a bad picture of it.  True.  

Pete's parents came over this afternoon for a lazy Sunday get-together.  Though he made me promise not to make anymore baked goods for at least two weeks, I disobeyed and figured I could get away with baking something if I sent it home with his mom and dad.   I'm always scouting new recipes and instantly thought of cranberry bread this morning because of it's festive look.  It's perfect to have warm with butter beside a cup of tea.

Preheat oven to 375F and lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.



Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large mixing bowl. 


Whisk together to combine.





Add in in orange juice, vanilla, oil and egg and mix until just combined.



Stir in dried cranberries. 


Spread evenly in loaf pan.


Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely before slicing.
