Really liked this recipe! Moist with just the perfect amount of cranberries (I used craisins) Doubled the spices as suggested and also substituted 1/4 cup water for 1/4 cup OJ. I don't have a bread machine, so I dissolved the yeast in the warm water and let it sit, mixed together dry ingredients (EXCEPT 1 cup flour) added the butter (melted) and liquid stuff. Then I mixed/kneaded in the last cup of flour. Kneaded about 8 minutes (until elastic-y)and then let rise until it doubled (about 1hr), put in a greased loaf pan and let rise again (mine took about 40-50min to double) and then baked at 400F for 15 min and then reduced to 350F for 25 min (mine is an electric oven and somewhat goofy, so you might need to adjust the baking time)

I thought this bread would be so good, esp. as I love cranberries. I couldn't have been more wrong. My breadmaker doesn't have a Sweet Bread setting, but does have a Fruit/Nut setting. That is what I used, and it came out underbaked--had to finish it in the oven. The taste is not in the least remarkable. Like Liv-Pup said, "doughy". I think if I were to make it again, I would use the normal setting of my breadmaker. The difference between the two is a matter of degrees, but enough to make a difference in this recipe. Will not try again.

This sounds great but I don't have a bread machine - will the recipe still work if I make it by hand?

Wow. This is the best bread I have ever eaten! I have had it every morning for breakfast, and now I'm making another loaf. It is even more wonderful if you add 1/2 of pecan pieces with the cranberries. I could eat nothing else but this bread for the rest of my life and be very happy.

I doubled the cranberries and the spices except for the cloves. I added a 1/2 cup of walnuts because it's all I had--it was great and 1 full cup would have been perfect.

Yum! I doubled the spices as suggested by other reviewers, and only had fresh (thawed) cranberries. YUM! Awesome hot, or toasted with a bit of agave nector drizzled on.

Used Amelia's instructions for mixing without a bread machine. Also doubled the spices- next time I will not double the cloves- they were a bit overwhelming! I had no craisins, so chopped up a cup of some frozen cranberries. The bread baked into a lovely, soft loaf- perfect with a cup of tea for breakfast!
