Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat a 9x3x3-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray; reserve. In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, zest and all spice; reserve. In the bowl of the Cuisinart Hand Stand Mixer, add the egg, milk, sour cream and vanilla. Fitted with the flat beaters, mix on speed 1, gradually raising to speed 4, for 20 seconds. With the hand stand mixer still running, reduce to speed 4 and slowly add the butter. Mix for about 15 seconds, or until combined. Reduce the hand stand mixer to speed 1 and add the dry ingredients. Once almost fully mixed in, add the cranberries and nuts. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Bake in the preheated oven for about 50 to 55 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean.
