Cranberry Nut Bread
This cranberry nut bread recipe is a slightly sweet, moist quick bread with a hint of orange. It's full of plump cranberries that are chopped so that each bite is loaded with the delicious tangy taste of cranberries.

¾ cup white sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped cranberries
½ cup chopped walnuts
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil

3. Add the cranberries and walnuts, and stir to coat with flour.
4. Mix together the egg, oil, orange juice, and orange zest.
5. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until just blended.
6. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
