It is my turn to bring refreshments to church tomorrow for our fellowship time and I decided to make Cranberry-Orange Bread. I love this bread because it actually has a chewy texture and tastes delicious.
Sift together 4 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 3 tsp. baking powder, 3 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking soda.
Cut in 1/2 cup butter.
Add 2 beaten eggs, 2 tsp. grated orange peel and 1/2 cup orange juice. Stir until just moist.
Fold in 3 cups of raisins and 3 cups chopped cranberries. I keep my cranberries in the freezer and pulse them in my food processor.
Put in two greased 9x5x3 inch pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 70 minutes.
