Grandmother's Famous Cranberry Bread


  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup goat butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp grated orange peel
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • 1 ½ cups light raisins
  • 1 ½ cups fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped


Sift Flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda into a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Add egg, orange peel, and orange juice all at once; stir just until mixture is evenly moist. Fold in raisins and cranberries.

Spoon into a greased 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan; cool on a wire rack.

If you choose, you may substitute cranberries for the raisins to have an all cranberry bread.
