I'm a true morning person who loves entertaining at breakfast. It's so much fun to get up early, set a pretty table and share a delicious breakfast with friends.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • Grated peel of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In a small bowl, beat egg; add orange juice, peel, butter and water. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in cranberries and nuts. Spoon into a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan or two 5x2-1/2x2-in. mini-loaf pans. Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until bread tests done. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
