This is one of the most delicious breakfast breads I know, and I like it best toasted. The simplicity of the Shaker community gathering for prayers and breakfast before a day at hard work must have been a wonderful thing.
What ever happened to our morning family time together? It is gone and we may have to reschedule our lives in order to retrieve that precious time.
Mix dry ingredients together very well in a large mixing bowl. Put the juice and grated rind in a measuring cup and add enough boiling water to make ¾ cups liquid. Add to the dry mixture. Add the egg and shortening or oil and mix just enough to moisten the flour mixture. Add cranberries and nut meats. Bake in a greased loaf pan 60 to 70 minutes at 325ø. Store 24 hours before cutting.
