Mum's Cranberry Bread

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by echo echo

This was the main kind of quick bread my mother made. She gave it as a gift frequently because it was so well loved. We ate it cold like cake or toasted with butter on it. If you don't have orange juice on hand, you can simply use another 1/2 c milk, but it's definitely better with the orange juice. She never included nuts, nor do I, but I suppose there's no reason not to if that's what you prefer.

I was in the mood to do some baking, and thought cranberry bread! Found this recipe, and went into action. I didn't have any cranberries, however I used 1 cup craisions and let them soak in the milk while I was getting things together. I used 1/4 c egg beaters for the 1 egg and since I didn't have orange juice made, I just did the 1 cup milk. Baked it for about an hour and five minutes and PRESTO! A bread both the hubby and I won't stop muching on. I have put this in the "keep" pile and will make again. In fact my son has a play date next week and I will take a loaf over for the host.
