Cranberry Pecan Orange Bread

I saw the recipe copied to a comment on another forum (Post.News) that is just getting off the ground. I’m posting things to it as well as two Mastodon instances (Counter. Social and Ohai.Social), trying to establish a presence there in case Twitter goes dark. I am jeffreyw at all three.

2 cups sifted all purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1-1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup oil

1 egg, well beaten

3/4 cup orange juice

1 tsp orange zest

1 cup fresh cranberries

1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan.  Sift dry ingredients.  Combine egg, orange juice, oil and zest and add to dry ingredients, mixing just to moisten.  Fold in berries and nuts. Turn into pan and bake at 350 until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour for large loaf and about 40 minutes for small loaves.  Cool on wire rack before removing from pan. 

I tested mine with a toothpick at 45 minutes, not done yet, and again at the hour mark, which was just a tad too long. Mine was made with mango juice, as was the powdered sugar glaze. I did use the zest of an orange because I had a small one. This one turned out well enough so that I will make another.
