Cranberry-Nut Bread

This recipe delivers a Christmas classic from a recipe my Mom would make every year. The bread freezes well.



Step: 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

Step: 2

Sift flour, white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Mash butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.

Step: 3

Stir orange juice, egg, vanilla extract, and orange zest together in a small bowl; add to flour mixture and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened and batter-like. Fold cranberries and walnuts through the batter; spoon into the prepared loaf pan, spreading so the corners and sides are slightly higher than the center.

Step: 4

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which not always rise as well as clear bread.

To made this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

A dough’s first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
