Cranberry Nut Bread for Twinks is a community recipe submitted by Agatha and has not been tested by so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 F. Grease a loaf pan and lightly flour. Using a fork, combine the flour,sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and ground clove in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. In a medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter, juice, egg, and zest. Fold the liquid mixture gently into the dry ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, combine gently only to blend. Add the berries and nuts. Combine gently; do not over-work the batter!
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Smooth the top with a spatula. Bake 50-60 minutes in preheated oven. If the top browns quickly, lay a sheet of aluminum foil loosely over the top. The bread is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few crumbs attached. (If your toothpick comes out clean, the bread is probably overdone.)
  • Allow the loaf to cool in the pan on a wire rack for +/- 10 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to cool thoroughly before slicing.
  • Additional Information

    Slice using a serrated knife after allowing to cool completely. This quick bread will keep 3 or 4 days at a cool room temperature, wrapped airtight. Also makes nice toast when the loaf is a little stale.
