  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240g)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200g)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (7g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (2.5g)

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the cranberries and walnuts to the flour mixture. Toss to coat them evenly.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, and orange zest.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly.
  7. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
