Would this be good to take as a dessert?

CRANBERRY - ORANGE NUT BREAD


1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. butter, softened
Juice and grated peel of 1 orange
1 egg
1 c. cranberries, chopped
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Heat oven to 350°F.
Grease bottom of loaf pan, 9 x 5 x 3 inches. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Stir in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in orange peel (about 1 tablespoon), the juice of 1 orange and 1 egg. Stir only until the flour is moistened. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Spread evenly in pan.
Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 55 to 65 minutes.
Loosen edges of loaf with spatula; remove from pan. Let stand at least 8 hours before slicing.
If using self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt. Reduce baking soda to 1/4 teaspoon

  • Sounds delicious, but I'm not sure I would consider it dessert. To me it's more of a brunch item.
