I found a recipe years ago that looked like just the right one for Cranberry Bread, but it needed a few adjustments. After years of making this bread, I think I have it just right. Everybody always asks for another slice!

3
Cut in butter until crumbly.
4
Add beaten egg, orange peel and juice. Stir until mixture is evenly moist.
