  1. Elizabeth's Cranberry-Orange Loaf

  2. from Everyone Can Cook for Celebrations by Eric Akis. The addition of golden raisins makes this loaf reminiscent of a fruitcake - you can always leave them out. (I also reduced the salt from 1 tsp. to 1/4 tsp.)

  3. 2 cups all-purpose flour

  4. 1 cup sugar

  5. 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  6. 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  7. 1/4 tsp. salt

  8. 1/4 cup butter, softened

  9. 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  10. 1 tsp. grated orange zest (I don't measure - just zest the whole orange.)

  11. 3/4 cup orange juice

  12. 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries

  13. 1 1/2 cups golden raisins

  14. 350F and spray a

  15. 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter until the mixture is evenly crumbly. (Idea: you could do this in the food processor, and make dry mixes in advance to keep in the freezer; add the egg, juice and berries when you want to bake it!)

  16. Add the egg, zest and juice and stir until almost combined; add the cranberries and raisins and stir just until the batter comes together. Spread into the pan and bake for about an hour, until the top is springy to the touch.
