Orange Cranberry Loaf


I was going to post this recipe on Sunday as a celebration of being on vacation for the next nine days but all I have done for the first 2 days of my vacation is sleep.  Don’t feel bad for me,  I don’t sleep well most nights so if I sleep all day it is because I need it.  Also don’t feel bad for me because I still have 7 days of vacation left.

Orange Cranberry Loaf


1 cup flour

6 TBS sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp salt

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup orange juice

1 1/2 TBS melted butter, cooled a bit

2 TBS oil

1 TBS orange zest

1/4 cup dried cranberries

2 1/2 TBS nuts, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 5 x 2 inch loaf pan with non stick cooking spray.  In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Mix well.  In an other small bowl, combine the milk, orange juice, cooled butter, oil, orange zest, cranberries and nuts, if using.  Combine the wet ingredients  with the dry ingredients. Stir to combine until just moistened. Scrape batter into the prepared pan.  Bake for 30 -40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
