I love when fresh cranberries appear in the store in the fall. The fruit reminds me of family get togethers where cranberries are traditionally served on the table.
I like to make cranberry orange loaf for Christmas. The cranberries and the orange juice pares well together and provides a tart alternative to the sweet treats of the season.
2 cups flour
2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup orange juice
1 beaten egg
2 tbsp melted butter
1 cup whole cranberries
Mix orange juice, egg, sugar and butter together in a bowl until well blended.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Fold wet ingredients into dry and mix until just incorporated.
Fold in cranberries.
Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 to 60 minutes.
If you love cranberries you’ll adore Cranberry Tarts.
