CRANBERRY NUT BREAD

CRANBERRY NUT BREAD

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 stick (1/2 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into bits

1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

3/4 cup fresh orange juice

1 large egg, beaten

½ cup sweetened coconut flakes

1 cup coarsely chopped cranberries

½ cup finely chopped walnuts

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in the bowl of a food processor.  Pulse a couple of times to combine.  Add butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal.  Transfer this mixture to a large mixing bowl.

 

Add the zest, orange juice, egg, and coconut to the bowl and mix until just combined.  Fold in the cranberries and walnuts. 

 

Transfer the batter into a well-greased (butter or non-stick spray) loaf pan.  Optional - I like to cut a bunch of cranberries in half and place cut side down on top of the batter in the pan which makes for a pretty presentation after baking.

 

Bake for 1 hour or until tester comes out clean.  Let cool for 20 minutes and turn onto your plate.  Slice and devour.
