"A moist quick bread with a faint hint of orange flavor, and the tang of bits of cranberries." — LOUGRAY

This is a good basic recipe. For those who are having trouble with the loaf falling apart or crumbling-remember when baking quick breads that overstirring it will cause those problems. You want to add the dry ingredients to the liquid and only stir enough to mix things together and then stop. It is better to err on the side of not enough stirring then too much. "Just till combined" means just that. I put powdered sugar on one loaf and drizzled icing on the other. Both made nice additions to my brunch luncheon. Thanks Karin.
I made this bread last night. Cooled + wrapped with plastic wrap. It was sliced around noon today + was slightly crumbly. I read in another review that you need to keep it wrapped for 24 hours prior to slicing. Not sure what I did wrong but it may have been in the mixing although I do not think I over mixed. If anyone has any helpful hints I am all ears. Otherwise it was delish!
The first time I made this it turned out great. I took it to the office and it was gone in no time. The second time, I overground the cranberries and walnuts, and the bread ended up falling apart and tasting drier. Chop the cranberries and walnuts just a bit for the best taste.
Have been making this one for two years, and gets rave reviews every time I serve it! The grated orange peel is important, and I love the fact that it's lower in fat than a lot of quick breads. Dried craisins are not the same as fresh ... I buy extra bags of fresh cranberries in the fall and just toss them in the freezer as is so I can make this bread year round. A belated thanks for sharing this recipe!
Excellent recipe! My husband and I love this bread. I used my food processor to chop the cranberries and nuts. I also used a tablespoon of grated orange peel, fresh off the orange instead of the prepared orange zest. It turned out great. We ate half of it before it cooled! It is very pretty too. I will be making in and giving it out as gifts for Christmas. Thanks!
Very good recipe. Not too sweet and has a pound cake kind of texture. I added a jar of chopped (and rinsed) Green Maraschino Cherries to make it even more festive looking. Beautiful!
This is the best ever cranberry receipe I have ever tasted. I used suggestions submitted by BREADBAKER with the following modifications: 1. One cup of raw sugar for a double receipe with one tablespoon full honey. 2. I mixed whole and chopped cranberries and pecans also finely chopped with larger chunks. 3. Whole wheat flour was combined with all purpose flour in equal amounts. The bread was just sweet enough. The orange zest must be included. We loved it!
We liked it, but it wasnt exactly what I was looking for. It had too many nuts in it, and cranberries. I substitued cranberries for craisins (dehydrated sweetend cranberries) which I think added to the flavor. It was good.
