from Coming Home with Gooseberry Patch

Makes about 8

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon orange zest
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup cranberries, coarsely chopped
3/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and zest. Make a well in the center; set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together eggs, milk and butter; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened; fold in cranberries, nuts and apricots. Spread in an 8"x4" loaf pan that has been greased on bottom and 1/2 inch up sides.

Would make this again.
Love this! I substituted pecans for the walnuts, and it turned out perfectly. I'm making these for my son's teachers at school. Yum! 5 stars
