Christmas is coming and what better way to wake-up than with a breakfast already prepared the night before! According to Ocean Spray “cranberry are the unofficial-official fruit for the holidays” so I have decided to try a new recipe! The nuts are always optional but I made a cranberry nut bread today, this is my first time and I have had one great review from my mom who had it with a little tea as her morning snack. Please leave a comment if you have tried this recipe and fully enjoyed it!

2 Cups Flour

1 Cup Sugar

1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

3/4 Cup Orange Juice

2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

1 Egg

1 1/2 Cups Fresh or Frozen Cranberries (Chopped!)

1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts (This is optional and you can put in as much or as little as you would like.)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees (F). Grease a loaf pan (I used a 9×5). Mix in a medium bowl all of the dry ingredients. Then add the orange juice (Mix) then the egg (mix). Mix all those ingredients together until it is well combined.

Then stir in the cranberries and nuts. I used a little handy chopper from Black and Decker to make this process go a little faster, but a good ole’ knife and cutting board will do the trick too.

Pour into the *Greased loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes (this time can alter based on your oven). Best trick in the book take a toothpick and check the middle in order to see if it comes out clean. Once the bread has finished let cool for about 15 minutes. Then flip it over and place it on a decorative plate, you could even have it sliced up already for easy pickin’.
