Cranberry Orange Nut Bread ~ Gluten Free

In a Large bowl mix with a wire whisk:

2 Cups Gluten Free Flour Mix (***See Foot Note***)
¾ Cups Sugar
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
½ tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt

Add using a Wooden Spoon: Mix just until combined
1 egg slightly beaten with a fork
1 tsp. Orange Zest
¾ Cups Orange Juice
2 Tbl. Vegetable Oil

Using a Rubber Spatula: Gently Fold in
1 ½ -- 2 cups of Whole Fresh Cranberries (Rinse and drain in a colander,,removing any stems)
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts

Spray a 9X5 Pan with Cooking Spray

Pour the Bread Batter into the pan and spread out evenly.

Bake in a Preheated 350* Oven
for 50-55 Minutes or until Done
I use a Digital Thermometer. When it reaches and internal Temperature of 205* your bread is done.

Remove from the pan and cool on a Wire Wrack

When the Bread has completely cooled wrap in plastic wrap over night.
This helps to make a nice soft crust with a moist bread

The next morning unwrap your bread, slice and serve

This bread stays fresh for 3 days
or you can Freeze it in individual pieces wrapped in plastic wrap stored in a Zip-lock bag or container.


(***FOOT NOTE***)

You can use the recipe below for home made Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix

Gluten Free Home Made Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, cakes, quick breads and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.

Bob's Red Mill Flours:

Acu Rite Digital Thermometer
I used a digital thermometer to check the bread for when its done. Bake until 208*-210* in the center of the bread.
Its also great to check the temperature of the milk and water before adding yeast. Its a helpful gadget. My Digital Thermometer is by Acu Rite.
