Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Tip: When grating orange peel, be sure to grate only the orange part of the skin. The white part, or pith, is very bitter.
  • Tip 2
    Tip: Fresh cranberries are available only during the fall and early winter. Why not buy a few extra bags to keep in your freezer? You can freeze them for up to a year.
  • Tip 3
    Tip: To avoid ledges on the edges of your quick bread, grease only the bottom of the baking pan. A fully greased pan prevents the bread from forming a nicely rounded top.
  • Tip 4
    Tip: Go nuts! Walnuts, pecans and cashews are perfect for this quick bread. Pick your favourite.
  • Tip 5
    Tip: If the loaf sticks to the pan, press gently on the sides of the loaf with a knife or metal spatula to loosen.
