  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease large cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or crush in food processor).
  • 2
    In large bowl, stir together cereal, flour, cranberries, orange peel, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until mixture looks like fine crumbs; set aside.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, stir together buttermilk, applesauce, maple syrup and eggs. Stir into cereal mixture until dough forms. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead 30 seconds to 1 minute or until smooth (if dough is too sticky, knead in additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time). Shape dough into 7-inch round; place on cookie sheet. Cut X shape, 1/2 inch deep, on top of dough.
  • 4
    Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool 30 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • No cranberries? You can use raisins or any chopped dried fruit or combo of fruits.
  • Wrap bread tightly and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
