Mom's Cranberry Bread

cranberry bread, originally uploaded by Kim De.

No, not my mom. Not really sure WHOSE mom. Like lots of my recipes, this has been floating around the CLBB, highly recommended, for several years.

I mentioned in my last post that I wanted to try more cranberry recipes so when person after person raved about this recipe I knew it was worth a try.

I didnt do much to change the original ingredients, I just subbed mini chocolate chips for the nuts. I was surprised when the chip all floated to the bottom and gathered in a group, but not all surprises are bad!

Be warned, it is sticky sweet. The orange juice makes it quite moist, but also makes for a sweet contrast for the tart cranberry pieces.

And I must tell you, it is beautiful to look at!

Mom's Cranberry Bread (CLBB)

2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 beaten egg
3 tablespoons oil
1 cup orange juice
