Orange Cranberry Bread

This bread is a favorite in our house around the holidays... you can make it any time of the year (as long as you have cranberries - which could of course be frozen)... we just like it best with fresh ingredients :-)
I have to be careful and give some away because my darling hubby and I like it too much!!!

Orange Cranberry Bread
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 large eggs
1 large orange
4 Tbsp. butter melted
2 cups cranberries, coarsely chopped
3/4 cups broken walnuts

Preheat over to 375. Grease 9 x 5 loaf pan. Grate peel from orange and squeeze 1/2 cup juice. Combine dry ingredients. Beat eggs, butter, orange peel, and juice. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture. Fold in cranberries and walnuts. Bake 55-60 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan.
