Orange Cranberry Bread Recipe

Serves: 3 mini or 1 full size loaf
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1½ cups fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup margarine, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup orange juice (fresh squeezed is best)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in orange zest, cranberries, and pecans. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar, and egg until smooth.
  4. Stir in orange juice. Beat in flour mixture until just moistened.
  5. Pour into prepared pan.
  6. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the bread springs back when lightly touched. Let stand 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Wrap in plastic when completely cool.
