Step by Step Method
Preheat oven to 350F (for metal pan).
Spread hazelnuts on a large rimmed baking sheet and toast in oven, tossing occasionally, until fragrant, 10 to 12 minutes. Rub the warm nuts in a clean dish towel to remove the skins (discard the skins); coarsely chop.
Spray an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch metal loaf pan with baking spray, line with parchment paper (separate pieces for sides/bottom and ends/bottom), allowing enough paper to overhang the pan by a couple of inches all around, for easy bread removal.
Spray the parchment paper with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugars, baking powder, and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, milk, eggs, orange zest, and extract; add to the flour mixture and mix until just combined (do not over mix).
Fold in the hazelnuts and cranberries.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes (tent with foil if the top browns too quickly).
Orange Glaze Preparation:
Heat juice and dash of salt; add sugar and stir until sugar melts.
Pour hot sauce over hot bread (while still in loaf pan) - poke a few holes in bread so the sauce soaks into the bread.
Cool completely before removing from pan.
