This was an excellent recipe, but I went with 4 stars only because I made a few changes. I substituted orange juice for the water and added about 2 tsp. of orange zest. Even with the changes, the orange flavor, although present, was not overly strong. The cranberries chewy and adding a nice tang. Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I plan to make it for work this week and for Christmas morning. Thanks for the recipe!

Very nice. For once, I followed the directions to bake in the bread machine and it made for a lovely loaf. However, I'll probably try this in the oven next time--I just prefer oven baked bread. Still, this rose perfectly and baked very well in the bread machine, so it's a great bread for a bread machine. I did modify it slightly and used 1/2 orange juice in place of the water. Delish! Also, a note for anyone using their bread machine for the first or second time . . .if you have a fruit/nut beep, wait to add the craisins until you hear the beep. It works well that way. Thanks for the recipe!

Very good when fresh and still warm. Not so much the next day, as with most home baked bread. Used bread flour, subbed o.j. for the water, and the zest of 1 orange for the oil (not gonna go out and get orange oil just for this) the orange flavor came out very nicely. I think leftovers would have made a lovely and unique bread pudding. But my irritation to my family not eating this loaf led me to just toss it. It was good though, not very sweet, and perfect for toast with jam or to make French toast.

Had to make a few substitutions. I only had enough bread flour to make the recipe so I used 3 C. minus 2TB of it. I also didn't have yogurt so I soured 3/4 C. milk with 1 TB of vinegar. I ALSO didn't have any honey, so I used molasses instead. I threw everything in the bread machine at the beginning as directed and it was fantastic. It smells wonderful and tastes great. I will definitely be making this again!

Really easy and very good. I had a little trouble with a raw spot in the bread but this was only the second time I have used the bread machine so unwilling to attribute to the directions (also we are in Colorado so I probably was supposed to do something about that as well). My 16 year old loved it and she is a sweet nut so that says something about the taste. Thanks (and I'll figure out the high altitude thing for next time).

This is my new go to recipe for our morning sweet bread! It's not overly sweet but just right. I did make several changes.... I used all whole wheat flour (although when I ran out, I've also used a mix of white and wheat). I have tried all kinds fruit and nut mixtures and added cinnamon or butterscotch chips too. I used maple syrup for honey. And added vanilla powder instead of the orange. This time I'm trying coconut oil for the butter. Haven't had a failed attempt yet!

This is a good bread, however not super-special. I followed it to the letter, and I'd make it again, but I might add almond extract next time around.
