Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I wish you all a wonderful day and safe travels. This recipe is awesome for this time of year when cranberries seem to be popular. It also has a hint of orange in it. Another hit with my dad...and mom and I thought it was pretty good also! In fact...I shouldn't have left the entire loaf at their house. Well I have taco pie in the oven and have to be to church in a hour so I this is going to be a short post. Have a happy thanksgiving!

2 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. cold butter
3/4 c. orange juice
2 tsp. grated orange peel
1 c. chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 c. golden raisins
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. cold butter
1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
2 tsp. orange juice
1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients; cut in butter until crumbly.
2. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, orange juice and peel. I use my little hand grater for the orange peel and it works wonderfully! Sir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in cranberries and raisins.
3. Transfer to greased 8 in x 4 in loaf pan.
4. Combine brown sugar and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
6. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
7. For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar and orange juice until smooth. Drizzle over bread. I waited until it had cooled off almost completely.
