Derolyn St. Louis, Freetown, Massachusetts Cranberry Harvest


1 large loaf or 2 small loaves


2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped
1 tablespoon plus 2/3 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup applesauce
1/4 cup milk
1 cup walnuts, chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, toss the cranberries with the 1 tablespoon sugar and set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter and remaining ⅔ cup sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, combine the applesauce and milk. Add the flour mixture and the applesauce mixture alternately to the creamed mixture. Beat well. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts. Pour into 1 large or 2 small greased loaf pans. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack and let cool before slicing.
