Make a well and one by one add the orange juice, eggs, butter and oil. Stir from the center and gently mix them all together. Make sure not to over mix the mixture.

Add the cranberries and walnuts and mix into the batter.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.

Serve thinly sliced with butter or just as it is. They taste great toasted and make great breakfast with some jam!
