Now for something completely different…
I have always enjoyed fixing meals. What’s new is my love of baking. I find that I can change old recipes into semi-healthy alternatives so I can enjoy them instead of store-bought varieties whose main ingredient is almost always sugar.
I’ve been making this recipe since 1976, when I got it from a boyfriend’s Mom. She said I might want to learn how to make it for him. Him I got rid of decades ago, but his Mom’s recipe lives on!
Cranberry Nut Bread from Kent’s Mom
2 cups white flour & 2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup sugar OR 4 packets of stevia plus 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups cranberries OR use one whole bag
1/2 cup chopped nuts
2 eggs beaten well
1 and 1/2 cups orange juice
5 Tbsp. melted butter
Sift all dry ingredients together. Add cranberries and nuts. Mix well. Add eggs and OJ mixture and mix until all ingredients are moist. Bake in 2 greased loaf pans at 350 degrees for one hour. Check with toothpick after 55 minutes.
