Its cold and snowy outside again good day for baking. We’ve got cranberries in the refrigerator and our chickens have started laying a few more eggs; enough that I can use for baking at least. When they come into full force in the spring maybe I’ll make some egg soap?? But here is the cranberry bread recipe I made this morning:
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
Add and mix well with a beater
4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
2 cups chopped cranberries
Put mixture into 2 loaf pans.
Bake at 350°F for 55 to 60 minutes or until done (a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean). Cool in pan for 10 minutes then eat! Great for a cold day.
Now I hope the snow stops by the time we go to our SuperBowl Party.
