  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt

Cream the butter and sugar and egg in a large mixing bowl. Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl. Combine the cranberry sauce, the beer, and the orange peel. Add the flour mixture and the cranberry mixture alternately to the butter, sugar, and egg mixture. Add walnuts.

Bake in an 8” loaf pan in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 60 minutes. Cool bread before cutting. This recipe keeps well.
