Cranberry Apple Bread

Now is the season for cranberries, why not make a few of these  up and freeze them?  Apples…cranberries….winter. Good match.

To make one loaf:


  • 2 cups peeled and chopped apples (Granny Smith)
  • grated zest of 1 large orange
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp. Crisco Oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1  1/2 cups flour
  • 1  1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup fresh (or frozen) cranberries, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven tp 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.

Stir together the apples, sugar and oil.  Add the egg and mix well.  Sift together the dry ingredients, including the orange zest..

Now stir the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing only until moist.  Stir in the cranberries and pecans.  Spoon batter into pan.

Bake 35-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

To keep, wrap in plastic wrap and then tin foil.  Freeze. Done!
