Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar.
  3. In a 1-cup (or larger) measuring cup combine juice and zest of the orange, butter and enough boiling water to reach 3/4 cup. Stir into flour mixture. Fold in egg, walnuts and cranberries. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. To make the icing combine confectioners' sugar, butter, orange juice and milk; add more milk if necessary so that the icing is thin and slightly runny. Drizzle over bread; allow icing to set before slicing.

This bread is great! I did make a few modifications, though: I used whole wheat flour and brown sugar, I used extra orange juice instead of adding water to the butter/orange zest/juice mixture, and I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. I also didn't put the frosting on top. This is a great recipe. I'll be making it a lot in the future!

I found it awfully dry for my taste. Looked nice but ended up throwing most of it away.

A no fail recipe! Cranberry Nut Bread is my favorite holiday treat! I followed the recipe to the letter, but made them in individual pans rather than one big one. They freeze beautifully, and look and taste fresh when defrosted. They smell heavenly while baking. No fuss magic!

Everyone loved this recipe! We couldn't wait to get it out of the oven, it smelled so good! I substituted pecans for the walnuts, we'll make this several times a year, not just around the holidays!

This recipe is as fantastic as it is easy. I made it as gifts for Christmas, and everyone raved and wanted the recipe. My husband calls it "crack in a pan." I made it without the frosting and did two small loaves per batch. They cooked in the same amount of time.

I only made a few adjustments (I always try to make a bit healthier): whole wheat flour, 3/4 cup of dk brown sugar (I just prefer the taste), about 2 tablespoons of Smart Balance spread for the butter, halved the cranberries, added 1/2 tspn each of vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg and skipped the icing. I cooked it at 350 for 50 mins and it turned out pretty tasty. I did find it a little dry and I will try adding a small amount of nonfat yogurt to the batter next time in place of the butter. I'm going to make mini loaves for the kids to give their teachers for Christmas this year. 1 loaf should translate to 4 mini loaves.

This recipe is Wonderful. I made it for a Christmas party and every one loved it. I did make a few of the modifications mentioned in the Review written November 25, 2006. by Amanda Cornelius I used extra orange juice instead of adding water to the butter/orange juice mixture, and I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. ** I left out the orange zest** (I followed the recipe on everything else)

Really good especially as a not too sweet dessert. I used frozen cranberries as fresh were not available. They worked just fine.
