Cranberry Nut Bread

This is a new recipe that I have just tried (sorry - forgot to click a photo) to use up that last of the fresh cranberries left over from the holiday season. It got good reviews, so I thought that I would share:

Cranberry Nut Bread

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tbsp grated orange peel
2 tbsp shortening
1 egg - well beaten
1 1/2 cup fresh cranberries, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Mix together dry ingredients until well blended. Beat in orange juice, orange peel, shortening, and egg. Beat until blended. Stir in cranberries and pecans. Spread into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 55 minutes, or until done. Cool completely before removing from pan.
