Another old Hoosier recipe.

2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp grated orange peel
3/4 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cup light raisins
1 1/2 cup cranberries, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and set aside.

Into a large mixing bowl sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Add the egg, orange peel and orange juice to the flour mixture, stirring just until the mixture is moist. Gently fold in the raisins and cranberries.

Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let sit for a minute or two then remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
