Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup margarine, softened

Preheat

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in orange zest, cranberries, and pecans. Set aside.

Mix

In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in orange juice. Beat in flour mixture until just moistened. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake

Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the bread springs back when lightly touched. Let stand 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Wrap in plastic when completely cool.
