  1. Preheat Smart Oven to convection bake at 350F.
  2. In the bowl of the Scraper Mixer Pro, place flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. On very low speed, combine ingredients, being sure to use paddle with acrylic spatula edges.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine egg, zest, juice and buttermilk. Pour into mixer and slowly bring together.
  4. Add butter to flour mixture and slowly mix until butter is incorporated.
  5. Once the mixture is combined, pour in the dried cranberries and continue to mix slowly until cranberries are evenly distributed.
  6. Turn off mixer. Turn mixture onto floured surface. Make large round mound. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment. With sharp knife, cut a large cross (or x) into bread. Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes.
