1/4 ts nutmeg
1/4 ts salt
zest of one orange, finely grated
1 cup brown sugar
1 ts pure vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 cup fresh cranberries, roughly chopped
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1 can cream cheese frosting or use the recipe HERE to make your own.
Pre heat oven to 375*.
Mix chopped cranberries with the brown sugar and let sit, this will help sweeten up the berries.
In large bowl, cut the butter into the flour until it is the consistency of meal. Then add all other dry ingredients: baking powder, nutmeg, salt, orange zest.
In a separate bowl, mix milk and egg and vanilla. Add cranberries and sugar. Mix.
Fold wet mix into the dry mix. Mixture will be sticky. Do not overmix.
Spray a plate or cutting board with cooking spray and spray your hands. Form into a 1 inch thick round loaf. See below:
