Preparation
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8x4- or 9x5-inch loaf pan with shortening.
  2. In large bowl, mix 3/4 cup sugar, the oil and egg. Stir in apple, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir in walnuts and cranberries. Pour batter into pan. In small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over batter.
  3. Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours, before slicing.
Tips
  • To easily shred the apple, use a medium-sized grater.
  • For added fiber, leave the peel on the apple.
  • Make the bread ahead and refrigerate or freeze. The bread will actually become more moist and easier to slice after storage.
  • This is a perfect bread for gift giving! Bake it in a disposable aluminum foil pan. When cool, wrap in foil or colored plastic wrap and tie with a ribbon.
