Whole Wheat Walnut-Cranberry Quick Bread
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 you think... 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.
