  • 250g plain flour

  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder + 1/2 tsp. bicarbonate of soda

  • 75g walnuts, chopped
  • 180ml fresh orange juice

  2. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and bicarb. Stir in the sugar. Add the cranberries and walnuts and stir to combine. Beat together the egg, veg oil, orange juice and zest, then add the wet mix to the dry mix and stir until just combined.

  3. Put the mix into the loaf tin, then bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

If you like, drizzle the cake with a little orange water icing. Recipe makes 1 loaf.
