  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mixed nuts chopped
  • 1 cup whole cranberries fresh or frozen
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or melted butter
  • 1 large egg


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and line a 9 by 5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nuts and cranberries.
  • In another jug, whisk together orange juice, oil and egg.
  • Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Batter will be pretty thick but don't over mix.
  • Dump the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 mins or until skewer inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  • For best results, let the bread rest for a few hours before slicing.
