Cranberry Bread

I suggest freezing the cranberries before you chop them in half. It's less messy and the berries maintain more shape during mixing and baking.
  • 4 c. flour
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 c. margarine
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp. orange peel
  • 1 1/2 c. orange juice
  • 3 c. cranberries, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda into a large bowl. Cut in the margarine until the mixture is crumbly. Add the eggs, orange peel and orange juice all at once. Stir the mixture just until it is evenly moist. Fold in the cranberries.

Spoon the mixture into two greased loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
