Cranberry Orange Bread

Cranberry Orange Bread

 Made  times

"Cranberry Bread is a natural coming from Oregon, a state famous for its cranberries. And each fall my husband and I go out and scrounge around picking up the walnuts for this delicious bread. A lady was presenting this bread at a food fair when I had the 'nerve' to ask her for the recipe. She obliged, and it's been a steady item in our menu ever since. But not just at Thanksgiving--heavens, no! I freeze the berries and have a ready supply all year long."

I used 2 cups cranberries and left out the walnuts. Also, I had to leave it in for an extra 15 min. It was gone as soon as I put it on the table. Good thing I stocked up on cranberries in Novemb...
