I’ve gotta give credit to my amazing stepmom, the baker, for this recipe. This bread is just perfectly sweet and tart, and is always a crowd pleaser at Thanksgiving. I just happened to modify it into a gluten free bread.
1 C Sugar (I like unrefined sugar, aka sucanat)
1 beaten egg
1/3 C Orange juice
2 C Flour (I prefer a gluten free blend by Bob’s Red Mill, but feel free to use your own bread mix)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda (switch to aluminum free baking soda)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C walnuts
2 tbs coconut oil or light oil
3/4 C less 2 tbs of boiling water
Grease pan with coconut oil or grass fed butter. Combine sugar, egg, oj in a bowl. Sift flour, powder, soda, salt & mix into egg mixture. Add the oil/water mixture (2 tbs coconut oil in a measuring cup then add boiling water up to the 3/4 C line). After mixing to combine, add the cranberries and walnuts, briefly mix it up again, and pour into your bread pan. You might need 2 bread pans 🙂
60 min at 325 degrees.
A great addition to Thanksgiving dinner!
