This bread is very good. It’s difficult to make. Freezing the cranberries makes it a little easier to deal with them.
1 C cranberries, grated or processed
1 1/4 C sugar
3 C flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 T fresh grated orange rind
1 C milk
3 T butter, melted
1/2 C chopped walnuts or pecans
The original recipe calls to grate the cranberries which I did for several years until I got a small food processor. If you grate them, you will freeze your finger into numbness. Could grate them fresh as well…still hard on fingertips. Sigh. Seems like all us cooks do is sacrifice.
Pour 1/4 C of the sugar into the cranberries and set aside. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt orange rind, and 1 C sugar together. Mix in your butter, egg, and milk. Fold in nuts. Batter will be thick.
Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 350° for one hour. Allow to cool slightly and tightly wrap in foil. Store for at least one day before serving to allow flavors to permeate.
