Cranberry Orange Marmalade Bread

Pam made this bread for Thanksgiving...I think she said it was based on her Grandmother's recipe for Cranberry Bread, but this time she added orange juice and orange-ginger marmalade.  She told me the first loaf made was gone in minutes, so you know it has to be great!

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup orange marmalade or orange-ginger marmalade
5 Tbl melted butter
1 lg egg
1 cup chopped cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375F
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugars, baking powder,baking soda,salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.  Make a well in the center.
In a separate bow, whisk together orange juice, marmalade, melted(cooled) butter, and egg.  Pour into well in the center of the dry ingredients.  Mix with a fork until the dry ingredients are moistened.  Stir in chopped cranberries ( Pam chops hers in the food processor) and walnuts.
Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake:
8 inch loaf pan - 50 to 60 minutes
9 inch loaf pan - 40 to 50 minutes

Note:  Pam tells me that in the original recipe, buttermilk replaced the orange juice.  Fell free to do this if you like.
