Cranberry Nut Bread

My absolute favorite quick bread.  My mom made this every year for Thanksgiving and I have carried on the tradition.  Now my in-laws beg me to make it (my first year gf I tried using a gf cranberry bread recipe that was met with much dismay, so I had to come back to this one and convert it).

Cranberry Nut Bread
adapted from Ocean Spray's Cranberry Nut Bread

4 c. Four Flour Bean Mix or Featherlight Mix
3 tsp. xanthan gum
2 c. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. orange juice
1/4 c. canola oil
2 Tbsp. orange zest
2 eggs
3 c. cranberries, fresh or frozen, roughly chopped
1 c. chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts work well)

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans.

Mix together flour, xanthan, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in orange juice, orange peel, oil and eggs. Mix until well blended. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Spread evenly in loaf pans.

Bake for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely. Wrap and store overnight. Makes 2 loaves.

Hey Cousin
Your mom passed on your blog. I'm still skimming through your recipes but I have my eye on this bread for now. Even though I don't need the gluten free stuff I still love recipe ideas. Oh yea and if I come across anyone who is I'll pass on your blog.
