2 c sifted all purpose flour
1 c sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 egg, well beaten
fresh juice and rind of one orange (or 3/4 c juice and 1 Tbsp orange rind*)
2 Tbsp melted shortening (see option below)
1 ½ c. halved cranberries (I chop them in the food processor)
½ c chopped pecans
1 tsp cinnamon or nutmeg
To the juice and melted shortening, add enough water to make 3/4 cup of liquid. Combine all and cook in well-buttered loaf pan at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
*If using orange juice and bottled orange rind, don’t melt shortening. Put all in mixed dry ingredients.
~~I tried it this time using applesauce instead of the shortening (I hate to waste a whole can of that stuff for a mere 2 Tbsp!). Worked fine.
