    Cranberry Walnut Bread

    We love the texture and flavor of this bread. Some people prefer tart cranberries in this bread, while others might want to toss their cranberries in a couple of tablespoons of sugar before stirring them into the batter. In the off-season, you can even make this bread with dried cranberries.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup canola oil
    • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 cup egg substitute
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons orange zest, (add 1 teaspoon more if you like a stronger orange flavor)
    • 3/4 cup orange juice
    • 3/4 cup walnut pieces, coarsely chopped
    • 1 cup cranberries, (picked through to remove bad cranberries) or 2/3 cup dried cranberries

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9x5-inch loaf pan with canola cooking spray (or lightly grease and flour).
    Step 2
    Beat canola oil, buttermilk, and sugar together until fully blended. Slowly beat in the egg and egg substitute.
    Step 3
    Blend flour, salt, and baking powder together, then slowly beat the dry mixture into the egg mixture. On low, beat in the orange zest and orange juice.
    Step 4
    Gently stir in the walnuts and cranberries. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
    Step 5
    Bake about 60-65 minutes (or until tester inserted in center comes out clean). Cool in pan 10 minutes before inverting onto wire rack.
