Another Cranberry Recipe

When I was growing up my mom joined the Parent's Magazine Book Club and we received a couple of hardback books in the mail every month or so. One of my favorites was Cranberry Thanksgiving by Wende and Harry Devlin. I have seen several Cranberry (name your holiday) books in the last few years, but as Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays....this book is my favorite. This is the recipe from the back cover of the book. I hope to spend some time in the kitchen making it this afternoon.

Grandmother's Famous Cranberry Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1 t. grated orange peel
3/4 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cup light raisins
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda into a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Add egg, orange peel and orange juice all at once; stir until mixture is evenly moist. Fold in raisins and cranberries.
Spoon into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan to cool on a wire rack.

You may substitute cranberries for the raisins to have an all cranberry bread.
