    As requested by Sjoerd and Cayuga, here is the recipe. I do hope it is enjoyed!

    Cranberry Orange Nut Bread

    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 cup sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup margarine or vegetable shortening (Crisco)
    1 well beaten egg
    1 tablespoon grated orange peel (I add about 2 teaspoons more)
    3/4 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans, walnuts, and again I add about 1/4 cup more)
    1 cup coarsely chopped cranberries (if you have a food processor, a quick whiz will save you a lot of knife work!)

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
    In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients, cut in margarine.
    Combine egg, orange rind and juice in another bowl, and add all at once to dry ingredients. stirring until combined.
    Fold in nuts and cranberries. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes. Loosen from edges of pan and let cool in pan for 30-40 minutes, then remove. Bread will slice more easily of stored overnight in the refrigerator.
    Can be frozen whole or sliced.

    Sjoerd, if you want to drizzle, go ahead and drizzle! I don't, but it does sound attractive.

    It is something that my mum did when she made banana bread, courgette bread and carrot breads. It was made wirh sugar, orange zest and Juice ...and it was tangy which complimented the otherwise sweetness.
    I don’t know anything about cooking , I was just interested. We all know that you are unparalled in the gally.

    Unparalled in the gally? That summoned up a vision of galley slaves rowing a galleon. I fear I'd be a complete washout as a rower. Better to be a grower!

    Let me just use the word kitchen then...I think that gally is a military term for Kitchen.

    Better a grower than a rower—— priceless.
    But if you were a rower, would that be on a viking boat or something tamer? You don’t impress me as being a tame person.
