Cranberry-Orange Loaf
Ingredients
1
cup sugar
2
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
2
eggs
1/2
cup milk
1/2
3/4
cup coarsely chopped cranberries
1/2
cup chopped dried figs and/or dried apricots
 
Orange Butter (see recipe below) (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up sides of an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in orange peel. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with a fork; stir in milk and melted butter. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Fold in cranberries, nuts, and figs and/or apricots.
  3. Spoon batter into prepared pan; spread evenly. Bake for 65 to 70 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.
  4. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing. If desired, serve with Orange Butter. Makes 1 loaf (14 servings).
