Cranberry Streusel Loaf Recipe

Cranberry Streusel Loaf Recipe

I relied on this foolproof recipe when teaching our children to cook. Each slice is dotted with plump cranberries and flecks of orange peel.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 65 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • BREAD:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine brown sugar and flour. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, allspice and salt. In another bowl, whisk the egg, orange juice, butter and orange peel. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in cranberries and raisins.
  • 3. Transfer half of the batter to a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Sprinkle with half of the streusel; repeat layers.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).

"I just made this bread for Thanksgiving dinner, but have to make another tonite!!! My husband helped himself to a generous portion, stating it was the best bread of all the pumpkin recipes I ever made. So I too tasted it--delicious, great taste, right amt of spices, moist; the streusel carmalizes on the pumpkin, adding and color. Will definately remember this recipe!

PS. I did use 3/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup and decreased amt of liquid by 2 tbsp instead of 1 cup of sugar."

"I did not have a good experience with this recipe. The bread was very crumbly even though I mixed it just until moistened and baked it for the minimum time (65 minutes) I was not wild about the taste either. I thought there was too much orange peel, too much allspice and too much nutmeg. Cinnamon and vanilla would have been better. I will not make it again, sorry."
