Cranberry Nut Bread

This recipe is a Hellmann family recipe that Steve's mother made at Thanksgiving and Christmas each year. Extra loaves were often made to send with children returning to college. ... Kelly Hellmann, former innkeeper

Ingredients
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 egg, well beaten
Juice of one orange plus water to equal 3/4 cup
Zest of 1 orange (about 1 Tablespoon)
1 cup cranberries, either sliced or coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and orange zest. Cut in shortening.

In a small bowl, combine beaten egg and orange juice/water. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix just until moistened. Fold in cranberries and nuts. Spread in loaf pan. Spread corners higher than center.
