Cranberry-Orange Friendship Bread

1 12 cups amish starter (see recipezaar.com/321840)
3 eggs
1 12 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup oil (or 1/2 oil & 1/2 applesauce)
12 teaspoon baking soda
12 cup orange juice
12 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
12 teaspoon salt
1 (8 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding (large size)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 cup dried cranberries


Preheat the oven to 325. To the remaining batter add eggs, baking powder, oil, baking soda, orange juice, vanilla, 1 cup sugar, flour, salt, vanilla instant pudding, 2 tsp cinnamon, orange zest, and cranberries. (Make sure the cranberries are mixed in well so they don't end up sitting on the bottom). Note: It is easier to mix if you combine the dry ingredients (except for sugar and pudding) in another bowl then add it slowly to the batter. Grease bottom and sides of 2 large loaf pans or spray with Pam. Mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. Dust the insides of each of the pans with half of the mixture, making sure to cover the bottom and sides well. Pour batter evenly into the 2 pans and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture over top of the batter. Bake for approximately 1 hour (until toothpick comes out clean.) Cool until the bread loosens from the pan easily. Turn onto serving dish. May be served warm or cold. Enjoy.
