The combination of cranberries, orange and cheese makes this bread a real taste treat. I often give these lovely quick breads as gifts. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/4 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons shortening
- 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in shortening until well blended. Stir in the orange peel and lemon peel. In a measuring cup, combine orange juice and lemon juice; add enough water to measure 1 cup. Add eggs and juice mixture to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened. Fold in the cheese, cranberries and walnuts.
- Pour into three greased and floured 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: 3 mini loaves.
