Here is the best quick bread I have ever eaten. I love the
recipe, the simplicity of it, and the flavor, toasted with
cream cheese, is to die for. Try it and let me know what
2 c Whole wheat flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1 lg Egg
2 c Buttermilk
1 1/2 tb unsalted butter, melted
1/2 c Walnuts; chopped
3 tb Light molasses
1/2 c Dried cranberries
1 cup grocery-store orange juice
Grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Soak the cranberries for a half hour in orange juice, then
drain. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Beat egg in a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk, molasses
and butter. Stir in flour mixture. Mix in walnuts and
cranberries. Scrape batter into prepared pan and bake 50-60
minutes, or until bread is well browned. Test with a
toothpick--it should come out dry. Remove from oven
and place on a wire rack to cool. Makes 1 loaf.
