Cranberry Walnut Bread

11 Jan


There is a blog called Once Upon a Chef

It is fabulous.

This is her recipe with a couple of changes

1/2 cup orange juice

2 teaspoons grated orange zest

2/3 cup buttermilk

6 tablespoons melted unsalted butter

One large egg

2 cup all purpose flour

One cup sugar plus two tablespoons

3/4 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups fresh chopped cranberries

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

2 teaspoons almond extract

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Use a 9 x 5 pan and spray the bottom with cooking spray.

Stir together the orange juice, orange zest, buttermilk, butter, almond extract and egg.

In another bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and then add the cranberries and walnuts.

Do not overmix

I love things when I don’t have to pull my mixer out.

Pour into  the pan

Even the top out with a spatula

Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Check with a cake tester to make sure it is clean and the bred is cooked.

I have made a ton of breads and this is one of my favorites.
