Cranberry Nut Bread

I made this bread for a flying club meeting we attended at North Las Vegas Airport.  It was very moist and flavorful.  One tip: don't leave out the orange peel.  It really bumps up the flavor.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup walnut topping (finely chopped walnuts)
  • 1 cup Craisins (or chopped cranberries)
  • 3/4 cup orange juice (I fresh-squeezed mine.)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix  the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.  
  • Stir in the Craisins and walnuts.
  • Mix orange juice, sugar, butter, egg, and orange peel.
  • Add to flour mixture and stir until just blended.
  • Spritz two loaf pans with non-stick buttery spray.
  • Divide the batter between the two loaf pans.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes or until done.
