Method cranberry bread

Whisk the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda together in a large bowl. Whisk the buttermilk, melted butter, orange juice, egg and orange zest together in a separate bowl. Gently fold the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula until just moistened. Stir in the cranberries & pecans, do not overmix.

Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake until golden brown 55 to 60 minutes.

Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes before unmolding onto a wire rack & cool for 1 hour.
