Cranberry-Orange-Almond Bread

Quick and delicious!  I absolutely love this bread made with fresh cranberries.  The flavors just burst in your mouth!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-2 cups flour
-1 cup sugar
-1 1/2 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-3/4 cup orange juice (pulp free)
-2 Tbs vegetable oil
-1 tsp orange extract
-1 large egg
-2 cups fresh cranberries (frozen do just well)
-1/2 cup almond slices
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.  Coat a 9x5 loaf pan with baking spray (the one with flour and butter).  Set aside.
In your mixer's bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Mix well.  Add the orange juice.  Stir in the oil, extract and egg.  Mix until well combined.  Stir in the cranberries.  Mix on medium until berries start to burst (they make such a nice sound!).  Stir in the almonds.
Pour mixture in prepared pan.  Bake in preheated oven for about 55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 10-15 minutes.  Transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.  Slice and enjoy!
