Cranberry Orange Bread
This week I grabbed a few bags of cranberries from the market -- I've heard stories that they will be in short supply this year and I want to make sure I get my fill. Cranberry Orange bread is one of those recipes I love to have this time of year. In fact, I'll likely make it at least twice more before Christmas. Yesterday I made some for Doug to take to work.
The teachers that Doug works with love when I bake. Actually, I don't think it's just me (I'm not delusional), they would eat just about anything. But, they are very appreciative when I send food in, so I do. If you tell me that you like something I make, in fact, if you even hint that you like something I make, I will cook it for you as much as you like. I love for people to enjoy my food. Last week, I sent in some Carrot Cake with Doug and one little ol' calculus teacher (who was helpfully shoveling snow while the cake was being scarfed down by everyone else) didn't get a piece. He was mildly annoyed, so, today he got his own personal loaf of Cranberry Orange bread. Enjoy Andy!
I have tried several recipes for Cranberry Orange Bread, but yesterday I made this recipe. It is amazingly low in fat, and still very moist and yummy. I will use it again. I omitted the nuts for allergy reasons and I chopped the cranberries because I think a whole cranberry is way too tart to bite into, but other than that I made the recipe as is. Mmmmm.
