Tasty Recipes

by Maggie Sefton

I've decided to regularly include some of my favorite recipes during these coming winter months.  New people discover our Cozy Chicks Blog website frequently and I can't think of a better way to welcome them than to share a yummy recipe.  The majority of the recipes that I'll be sharing have been included in our Cozy Chicks Kitchen cookbook which is packed full of Cozy Chicks recipes.  Hence, the book cover above.  :)  Today I'm sharing my Cranberry Orange Nut Bread.

This nut bread is good all year round, not just during the Holiday Season.  I kept tinkering with recipes until I came up with the flavors that I especially like.  I simply love the flavor of orange in this rich quick bread,  This bread is quick to make and cranberries can be found year round.  Give it a try and enjoy!  


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ cups white sugar
1 cup orange juice
¼ melted butter
2 eggs
1 cup fresh cranberries (not frozen)
1 cup chopped walnuts
½ cup grated orange peel

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease one regular size bread loaf pan (or two small loaf pans).  Dust pan lightly with flour, dumping excess.  Combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, & salt in large mixing bowl.  Combine the sugar, orange juice, melted butter, & eggs in another bowl, mixing well.  Stir into flour mixture along with cranberries, walnuts, and orange rind. Mix well, blending all ingredients. Pour into prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 50 minutes or into knife inserted into the center of loaf comes out clean.  Remove pan to wire rack to cool for 10 minutes, then run knife around edges of pan and turn out onto rack to cool completely.
