Cranberry-Nut Bread

From Bruce & Jill's Favourite Family Recipes

2 cups sifted flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped cranberries, fresh or frozen
Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Combine orange juice, rind and egg; pour into dry ingredients. Mix just enough to dampen. Fold in nuts and fruit. Spoon into one large or two small loaf pans (spread edges higher than center). Bake at 350 degrees about one hour or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove and cool. Store overnight before slicing.
