Cranberry Walnut Bread
I'm not sick of cranberries yet.
In fact this might just be my favourite use of them yet.
Sweet enough to soften the blow of the tart berries, but not so sweet that it feels indulgent.
Adapted from Simply Recipes
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped cranberries
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup orange juice*
1 tablespoon orange zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, fruit and nuts in a large bowl.
Mix melted butter, egg, sugar, orange juice and zest in another bowl.
Add wet ingredients into dry and mix until just combined.
Pour into greased loaf pan (or spring form pan in my case) and bake for 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool on wire rack.
*I actually only had about 1/2 cup of juice (some of which was even lemon juice) and I added 1/4 cup of milk to substitute the rest of the liquid
