This turned out amazing. I noticed one reviewer indicated their loaf was dry - I used a full cup of orange juice and used frozen cranberries and increased the cranberries to 2 cups. My loaf was really moist and I got rave reviews at work at a pot-luck. I will definitely be making this one a lot.....I also left out the nuts because of allergies and I don't think anyone minded.
This turned out very dry. Don't know why. I used half brown sugar and half white and I added some cinnamon and vanilla. To be fair, I just moved to a high-altitude city and perhaps my baking skills aren't perfected yet. The flavor was good, though. I will try again and see if I can correct whatever I did wrong.
I just made this bread and it turned out great. I used 1 cup of light brown sugar instead of white. I also put whole 12oz bag of fresh cranberries without chopping them. Although fresh cranberries are tart, I think it works out great in combination with sweet bread.
This just came out of the oven, and WOW is it good. I made a small loaf and a mini loaf. The mini baked for 40 minutes at 350 and the small loaf was done in 50 minutes. As I baked this for a gift, for a friend who can't have nuts, I added pomegranite seeds as a substitute for a little crunch. I also added a tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp each of ginger & vanilla. Very yummy, moist and orangey. I would definitely make this again.
just made muffins out of this recipe and we are really enjoying them. i omitted the nuts because i don't have any and i don't think it took away from the recipe at all. i used frozen cranberries chopped in half, trader joe's organic sugar and unrefined, unbleached flour for extra fiber, followed the recipe portions exactly and they are not dry at all. the texture is great and the smell when they were baking was wonderful. they were ready in exactly 20 minutes, so not only super easy but super quick too. good to have around for a grab-and-go breakfast.
I just got finished making this bread. I love the combination of orange and cranberries. The bread texture and taste was nice. I used fresh cranberries and I thought they came out a bit over tart. Next time I will use dried cranberries and see how it turns out.
I like this bread, but it is very different from others I've tried. I found the texture to be really interesting - tender, yet chewy. I bet it would make amazing toast! I baked it into mini loaves for my children's lunch boxes. My son said that it tasted like a cookie and it really does, probably because of all the butter. The bread was a little too greasy because of the amount of butter, but the little air holes where the chunks of butter melted while baking were pretty cool.
I made these as 4 mini loaves and they were a tad bit dry but they are delish when you warm them in the microwave with a pat of butter! Yummy!
