Ingredients & Directions

2 1/2 ts Active dry yeast
1/4 c Sugar
1/4 c Warm water
3/4 c Skim milk
1/4 c Butter; melted
1/2 c Canola oil
1 tb Orange zest; chopped
1 ts Salt
4 Egg yolks; lightly beaten
3 1/2 c All-purpose flour (up to 4)
3/4 c Sun-dried cranberries
1 c Chopped pecan

Butter a 10-inch tube pan; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the
yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, and water. Set aside for 10 minutes. Combine the
milk, butter, oil, zest, remaining sugar, and salt and stir into the yeast
mixture. Add the egg yolks, stirring well. Add the flour 1/2 cut at a time,
stirring well after each addition to incorporate the flour throughly. Knead
5 to 10 minutes until the dough is smooth, elastic, and satiny. Knead in
cranberries and pecans. Put the dough back into the bowl, cover, and let
rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk. Using a wooden spoon, beat
down the risen dough for about a minute. Place the dough in the buttered
tube pan and allow it to rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk.
Preheat the oven to 375. Bake the bread for 45 to 50 minutes or until it is
a dark golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Place on a rack to cool
or serve warm. Once cooled, the bread is also excellent sliced and toasted.
