Bread Recipe -
From Cranberry Thanksgiving
Perfect for Christmas and Thanksgiving
find it easier to double the recipe and make two loaves at once
since we have so many elves to feed (not to mention Santa himself).
Sift: 2 cups flour (sifted), 1 cup sugar, 1 and 1/2 tsp baking
powder, 1 tsp salt (I never use it), and 1/2 tsp baking soda.
Cut in 1/4 cup butter (I use Promise Extra Light margarine sticks-it
makes the bread really moist) until mixture is crumbly (I use
a mixer to crumble-ize it)
Add 1 beaten egg, 1 tsp grated orange peel (I use a grater/peeler
doohickey and grate an entire orange for every two loaves.), and
3/4 cup orange juice. (If you can get your Elves to do the grating,
it will help) mix until mixture is evenly moist.
in as many light raisins as you think looks good (the recipe calls
for 1 and 1/2 cups, I never measure) and about a half bag of chopped
cranberries per loaf. spoon into a greased 9 x 5 x 3 loaf pan
bake at 350' for 1 hour and 10 mins or until toothpick in center
comes out clean. I never use the toothpick test, but I suppose
it is a good idea.
out of pan on a wire rack. keep stored in aluminum foil, unless
you eat it all before it cools.
it doesn't come out well the first time, that is OK, it took Mrs.
Claus 3 or 4 attempts before she learned to make it consistently
