    2       c            Cranberries -- fresh or frozen
    1       c            Milk
    1       ea           Egg -- lg, slightly beaten
      1/4   c            Butter -- melted
    1       t            Orange peel -- grated
    2       c            Unbleached flour
    1       c            Sugar
    1       t            Baking powder
      1/2   t            Salt
    1 1/2   c            Cheddar -- md, shredded
      1/2   c            Walnuts -- coarsely chopped
 
   Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. then grease a 9 X 5-inch loaf pan;
   set aside.  Cut the cranberries in half and set aside in a small bowl.
    In a medium bowl, combine the milk, egg, butter, and orange peel and
   set aside. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large
   bowl.  Add the halved cranberries, cheese and nuts.  Toss with a fork
   to distribute.  Add the milk mixture all at once and stir the flour
   mixture until just moistened.  Turn into the prepared loaf pan and
   bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven or until a wooden
   pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in the pan on a
   rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the pan.  Cool to room
   temperature on the wire rack before slicing.
