My friend Sandy gave me some of this bread as a gift last night, I had to share the recipe with you. It is delish! Made into small loaves, it wraps up into perfect gifts. My loaf didn’t have raisin, but instead extra cranberries. Just like I LOVE it…
Grandmother’s Famous Cranberry Bread
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp. grated orange peel
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- 1 1/2 cups light raisins
- 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped
(can substitute more cranberries for raisins to have an all-berry bread)
Sift dry ingredients in large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Add egg, orange peel, and orange juice all at once; stir just until mixture is evenly moist. Fold in cranberries and raisins.
Spoon into greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour, 10 minutes for 9x5x3 pan; 35 minutes or so for mini loaf pans. Cool on rack. Enjoy!
