Making Cranberry Orange Bread?

I have 3 questions. Do you have to use baking powder when using self-rising flour? Can you use dried cranberries instead of fresh/frozen? Can you use 1/4 cup vegetable oil instead of butter?

You can use dried crans instead of fresh.
Self-rising flour already has baking powder in the mix-you can check the package ingredients to be sure.
You can substitute oil for butter, same measurements.

The result of changes 1 and 3 will be a somewhat different bread. If I were making the recipe, I would soak the dried crans in warm water for a couple of hours and I would not substitute oil for butter. This is not to say that your result would be inferior, just different. I much prefer butter over oil for taste, structure and (I believe) quality in any type of baked recipe.
