Tea Bread
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon non-aluminum baking powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon grated orange zest
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup cranberries, chopped (fresh or frozen)
Orange Glaze (optional)
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 cup sifted powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease the bottom only of an 8×4-inch or 9×5-inch loaf pan or use a non-stick loaf pan. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. In a large bowl, combine milk, orange juice, melted butter, zest and eggs. Stir to combine well. Add dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Gently stir in cranberries and mix just until they are evenly distributed. Pour batter (it will be thick) into pan and bake until a knife comes clean from the center, 50 minutes to 1 hour, depending on size of pan. Loosen sides from pan, remove and let cool completely.

When cool, prepare glaze, if using. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the orange juice with powdered sugar, adding a little more juice if necessary to obtain a smooth consistency. Drizzle over top of loaf.
