This is more like a coffee cake, and is a family favorite. Stock up on the cranberries after Thanksgiving is over. I buy lots of them and fill the freezer while I can. I hope you like it as much as we do.
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
Mix together in a bowl and cut in 1/4 cup butter until the mixture resembles small crumbs. Then add:
3/4 cup orange juice
Mix until just moistened then add:
2 cups chopped fresh cranberries and 1 cup chopped pecans
Fold in and pour into greased and sugared 9" loaf pan. Sprinkle sugar on top and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10min. Completely cool before taking out of the pan.
