Very moist, not-too-sweet, with nice little hits of tart from the chopped cranberries. This is from Anna Thomas' The Vegetarian Epicure Book Two

  1. Gather together the flours, sugar, baking powder, soda, cloves and cinnamon into the sifter, and sift into your mixing bowl. I ground cinnamon bark and whole cloves in my coffee grinder, and they tasted and smelled super-good!
  2. In another container, mix the orange rind and juice, egg, and melted butter. Stir these wet ingredients into the dry.
  3. Coarsely chop the cranberries, or give them a couple of quick whirls in a food processor. Add them to the batter along with the optional walnuts, and mix it all through.
  4. Pour into a buttered loaf pan, and bake at 350F for 1 hour, or until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. If I don't have a toothpick, I often use a stick of spaghetti for this task. Cool the bread on a rack, and if you're not going to gobble it all down right away (very tempting!) wrap it tightly to store.
