~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Kim's Cranberry Fruit Nut Bread
Makes 1 large loaf or 3 baby loaves.Note: You will need a chopper or grinder to chop up the cranberries
2 cups all purpose bleached white wheat flour
1 cup granulated white cane sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking POWDER
1 tsp. salt -(optional)
1/2 teaspoon baking SODA
2 Tablespoons vegetable shortening (solid Crisco)
1 Tablespoon grated orange peel -- I don't always put in, but adds some tang to the bread, if you like a more tart bread.
3/4 cup orange juice
1 well-beaten jumbo size egg
2 Tablespoons water
1 cup chopped cranberries
1/2 cup chopped nuts - (optional)
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Stir in orange juice, peel, water, shortening and egg to dry ingredients. Mix until well-blended.
Stir in cranberries and nuts. Turn into 9 x 5 inch loaf pan, greased on bottom only. Bake 55 to 65 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit (180 degrees celsius), or until a toothpick inserted in the top, comes back clean. Remove from pan about 10 minutes after removing from oven.
Cool thoroughly before serving. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap (if shipping, or gift wrapping) then wrap in aluminum foil, so that the bread will stay moist
For our international friends
there are easy to use conversion charts available on the web, for converting cup measurements to grams
This bread keeps well, and ships well, making it a great addition to holiday presents!
and is very yummy when the slices are buttered and warmed slightly in the microwave!
