    2 1/2  teaspoons     active dry yeast
      1/4  cup           sugar
      1/4  cup           warm water
      3/4  cup           skim milk
      1/4  cup           butter -- melted
      1/2  cup           canola oil
    1      tablespoon    orange zest -- chopped

 Butter a 10-inch tube pan; set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeas

 dd the egg yolks, stirring well.  Add the flour 1/2 cut at a time, stirring wel
 l after each addition to incorporate the flour throughly.  Knead 5 to 10 minute
 s until the dough is smooth, elastic, and satiny.  Knead in cranberries and pec
 ans.  Put the dough back into the bowl, cover, and let rise at room temperature
  until doubled in bulk.  Using a wooden spoon, beat down the risen dough for ab
 out a minute.  Place the dough in the buttered tube pan and allow it to rise at
  room temperature until doubled in bulk.  Preheat the oven to 375.  Bake the br
 ead for 45 to 50 minutes or until it is a dark golden brown and sounds hollow w
 hen tapped.  Place on a rack to cool or serve warm.  Once cooled, the bread is 
 also excellent sliced and toasted.
