Help! RCP needed...

Postby Robert Reynolds » Fri Nov 16, 2012 11:41 am

Gail volunteered me to make a cranberry pound cake or cranberry bread for Thanksgiving at her cousin's. I don't have a good recipe for either. Anybody got a good one?

Oh yes, my Mom/Grandmother always made the best cranberry bread. Here's their recipe, Robert. It's from Our Favorite Recipes cookbook from the West Bend, WI farm ladies of 40's era. Make sure you use FRESH cranberries and not those Craisins.

Cranberry Bread
I always doubled or quadrupled it and used smaller bread pans if given as gifts.

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 egg beaten
2 TBS melted butter
2 TBS vegetable oil
1/2 cup orange juice
2 TBs hot water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup cut fresh cranberries
Zest of one orange

Sift dry ingredients together. In another bowl, combine beaten egg, melted butter, oil, and hot water. Combine with dry ingred. Add orange juice. Stir until moistened. Fold in nuts, cranberries, and orange zest. Bake in greased 5x9x3 pan at 325 about 1 hr & 10 min. Cool - They make great gifts!

Robert-
Here's the Cranberry Bread recipe we make. In fact, we are making a loaf today! It is very, very similar to Carrie's and I can vouch that it tastes damn fine.
