classic cranberry orange bread

I love fall.   This season I can't seem to get my hands on enough pumpkins and gourds- they're all so pretty and unique.  I'm trying to enjoy all the colors and flavors of fall while I can as there's only a few more weeks until the Christmas season arrives.  The flavors in this bread are marvelous.  You'll want to enjoy this bread all year long so pick up a few extra bags of fresh cranberries when they're on sale and freeze them!

classic cranberry orange bread (Ocean Spray)
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 oil
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 egg, well beaten
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup chopped nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.  Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium mixing bowl.  Stir in orange juice, oil, orange peel and egg.  Mix until well blended.  Stir in cranberries and nuts.  Spread evenly in loaf pan.  Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool on rack for 15 minutes.  Remove from pan; cool completely.  Makes 1 loaf.
