Cranberry-Orange Bread

Cranberry-Orange Bread...I wanted to try different flavor combinations and I found this recipe on Recipezaar (#4058) and just changed the flour to some white whole wheat and omitted the walnuts.
Time: 1 1/4 hours, 10 minutes prep (depending on how you chop the cranberries!)
Serves 20
1 tbsp orange zest
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
4 tbsp butter, melted
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped
1 cup walnuts (optional, I didn't add them)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 loaf pan and have it ready. In a mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another small bowl, beat eggs lightly with a whisk or fork, then stir in melted butter, orange peel, and orange juice.
Add the wet mixture to the flour mix, and stir with a spoon until the batter is just mixed, then fold in the cranberries and walnuts (if using). Batter will be stiff.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake in the preheated oven for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out fairly clean (a crumb or two can stick to it but you don't want wet batter.)
Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan to finish cooling on the wire rack.
