1 cup raw sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Butter
HOT Water
½ cup orange juice
1 beaten egg
1 cup raw cranberries, cut in half
½ cup chopped pecans

-Sift flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda
-Put butter in 1 cup measure—fill to ½ cup mark with HOT water. Then fill to 1 cup mark with orange juice
-In a large mixing bowl, add liquid to beaten egg.
-Slowly add to flour mixture.
-Blend in cranberries and nuts.

This bread is a fond memory of the holidays. My mom makes it every year. I love to make them and give them away as holiday gifts. They are great toasted or just eaten cold.
