Cranberry Bread

This is a delicious bread that provides a touch of citrus taste!  It's one that my mom makes every Christmas.  Since we love it so much I decided to share it.


2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cups orange juice
2 tablespoons shortening
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups fresh whole cranberries
1 tablespoon orange zest

In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.  Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well.   Pour the batter into 2 well greased 8" bread pans.  Bake at 350 for 55 min or till tooth pick comes out clean.  Refrigerate or freeze to preserve the freshness longer than a day.
