  1. Preheat oven to 360F

  3. Either using a knife or food processor( I use my mini food processor by Cusinart) chop or pulse the cranberries a bit to rough chop them and set aside
  4. In large bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, orange zest, orange juice, eggs, milk, and oil
  5. *special note: buy 2 oranges if the first one is not very juicy I would add another half orange
  6. Beat with a hand mixer until thoroughly mixed together, about 3 to 4 minutes
  7. Add your chopped cranberries and mix just until incorporated
  8. Pour batter into the buttered baking dish and bake for about 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean in the center
