I mostly followed the recipe. I had little bits of stuff to use up, so I got a little creative. I didn't have a full cup of cranberry sauce, but I did have an aging mango, so incorporated that into the recipe. Between cranberry sauce and mango, I had about 1 1/2 cups of "liquid", so I left out the milk. I had 1/8 cup of brown sugar hanging around, so I added white sugar to make 2 cups total, and the recipe was still sweet enough. I didn't have any shortening, so I used 1-1/3 sticks of butter and 3/4 c of oil and beat those in with the sugar til it was light and fluffy. I put orange extract to up the "tang" factor after reading other reviews. I baked 1/2 of the batter into a loaf and 1/2 into muffins. Came out great! I would definitely make again and want to try with more cranberry sauce and chopped cranberries. Surely a keeper!
