Quick Cranberry Nut Bread
This festive cranberry nut bread stirs up quick and easy.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 (16-ounce) can Ocean Spray® Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
1 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2-inch loaf pan.
- Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
- Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine with sugar in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add egg; mix well. Break up cranberry sauce with a fork and add to the butter mixture. Add nuts. Add dry ingredients to the cranberry mixture, mixing just until the dry ingredients are moist.
- Spread batter evenly into prepared loaf pan. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. If bread begins to brown too quickly, loosely cover with foil and continue to bake until bread tests done.
Makes 1 loaf.
