Cranberries are one of my favotite foods and their tartness blends well with sweet oranges.

This is a family favorite and is especially looked forward to at Christmas or Thanksgiving. I often buy extra cranberries and store them in the freezer so I can make this year round.

You can also make these into muffins, just adjust the baking time.

  2. Sift together dry ingredients, mix well.
  3. Mix together wet ingredients. Add to the dry ingredients, stir just until moistened.
  4. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Pour or spoon (as the batter will be thick) into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour. If using the smaller loaf pans bake for 50 minutes. Allow bread to cool before removing from pan.
