I made a few alterations to this recipe, not because there is anything wrong with the recipe as written, but because I didn't have all the ingredients and I still wanted to try it. I used 1 cup of dried cranberries instead of fresh, and because of this, I upped the amount of orange juice to a full cup. I did not have any fresh oranges to zest, so I put in a heaping spoonful of orange marmalade instead since it's main ingredient is orange zest. Because I used the marmalade, I mixed all the wet ingredients in a blender to insure that they'd mix evenly. I also sprinkled some almond slivers and coarse sugar crystals on the top before baking it, which gave the top a delightful crunch. This bread came out great, even with the alterations. I can't wait to try it again with fresh cranberries!
