2 cups flour
1  1/3 cups sugar
1  1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup fresh cranberries, cut in halves
1 tsp. vanilla extract

rest of orange, seeded and liquified

( add water to make 1 cup, if necessary )
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped

Heat oven to 350*.  Blend flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Mix in butter, orange rind, egg, the extracts, and the liquified orange.  You may need to add a few tablespoons of water to make the mixture manageable, but it shouldn't be wet enough to pour.  Mix in the nuts and cranberries gently.  Spoon into a greased 9" x 5" loaf pan and bakefor about 1 hr., until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Makes one loaf.
