  1. Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Spray a loaf pan with non cooking spray (and/or line it with parchment paper)
  3. Sift the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  Add the cranberries and stir.
  4. In another bowl, beat the egg and add the remaining wet ingredients.
  5. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix using a strong rubber spatula or wooden spoon.  Be careful not to overmix.  Gently stir in the walnuts.
