My Cranberry Bread recipe is the zippiest I’ve made—thanks to an extra dollop of this special ingredient! And it’s not just for Thanksgiving anymore.

I love this bread for breakfast during the holidays…or alongside that special family feast…or for a healthy dessert. And it’s packed with anti-oxidents.

  1. 1Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Using a knife, cut the butter into little pieces and drop into the bowl; mix until crumbly.
  1. 1Add the egg, orange juice, and orange peel and mix until moise. Carefully fold walnuts, then the cranberries.
  2. 2Spray two loaf pans with cooking spray and pour batter evenly into the two pans. Bake at 350 degree for 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool pans on a wire rack 15 minutes, then invert bread onto wire rack to continue cooling. Makes two loaves.
