This is such a delicious quick bread. I really like the suggestion of one reviewer who wrote that she left the cranberries whole... that way you get the maximum flavor. I quess my only (very small) complaint about this bread was that I wanted more cranberries. I would probably double the amount next time. Thank you Karin for submitting this recipe!
p.s. I made another batch and baked it as mini loaves... recipe made 4; they were done in 25 min.... love this recipe!
I found this to be very dry. Any suggestions as to what I can do to change it? thanks!
This bread was wonderful! After greasing the pan, I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar in the pan to give the crust a sweet crunch. I sprinkled some extra chopped walnuts and some "sugar in the raw" on top before baking, and it really does look like a picture! Tastes great and a beautiful holiday bread. Takes no time to whip together too!
Excellent and Easy. This is the recipe on the back of the cranberry bags. Other than doubling the amount to 2 cups of berries and keeping them whole, I don't change a thing. Don't overbake. 50 min. exactly is right. If the dough is too stiff, add a few tablespoon of milk to moisten it up. TIP - for a prettier bread, place some cranberries on top of the batter before you bake it. The red color on top adds a gorgeous appearance to the bread. I also glaze mine with a lemon glaze. The glaze gives it a little tart flavor on top and keeps the bread moist. (glaze - lemon juice and powdered sugar). Glaze while warm.
Very tasty, fruity bread. I doubled the recipe and baked it in "little loaf" pans, 5 3/4 x 3 x 2 1/8, for 30 minutes. It made 5 little loaves.
This is a great recipe. I threw the cranberries in whole and it really turned out great. Nice slices of cranberries in the bread. Thx
SUGGESTIONS: you can add one more egg if you want, or increase the amount of cranberries, or decrease the sugar to add some tablespoon of orange juice concentrate ! Delicious !
This bread was fabulous! I thought that the orange flavor, from the juice AND zest, might be a bit strong, but it wasn't--it complimented the tang of the cranberries beautifully, so don't skimp on the orange zest...I took other reviewers' advice and used whole cranberries (increased to 1 1/4 cup) and it was perfect. Looks beautiful and tastes moist and flavorful--well worth making.
