Comment on this recipe

"Grandma Margot always got the kids involved in preparing this dish for Thanksgiving. Now we make it for her!"

Ingredients

Juice of two oranges
1/2 cup butter
4 eggs
2-1/2 cups sugar
4 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups sliced raw cranberries
Grated rind of two oranges
1-1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, optional
1 teaspoon ground cloves, optional

Instructions

Grease two rectangular loaf pans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour orange juice into a 2-cup measuring cup or bowl, fill with hot water, pour into a mixing bowl, add butter and let cool.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs until thick. Add sugar gradually to egg mixture. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add to egg mixture alternately with juice mixture, stirring until well combined. Stir in cranberries, grated orange rind and nuts, folding gently into batter. If desired, sprinkle in 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.
