Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9 x 5-inch (2 L) loaf pan.
  • 2. Stir flour with sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Add orange juice, orange peel, shortening and egg. Stir until well blended. Stir in cranberries, mini chocolate chips and nuts. Pour batter into loaf pan.
  • 3. Bake for 65 to 70 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Garnish with Icing Sugar Glaze (if using).
  • Makes 1 loaf.
  • Note:
  • • For the icing sugar glaze, beat 1 cup (250 mL) icing sugar with 1 tbsp (15 mL) milk, 1 tsp (5 mL) softened butter and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract until smooth. (Thin glaze by stirring an additional 1 tsp (5 mL) milk at a time until it reaches preferred consistency.)
  • Makes about 1/2 cup (125 mL) glaze.
