A nice balance of sweet and tart. I used almonds in and on top, but will skip the ones on top next time, as they just fall off when slicing. The almond extract gives this a nice flavor. The bake time was a little long. I took mine out after 55 minutes, but it would depend on your oven. Mine may run hot.

My family loved this recipe. I'm from Puerto Rico, so this was not neccesarily a Christmas recipe, but it was delicious for the summer season and rainy days in the island. I used walnuts the first time, then tried hazelnuts (liked walnuts better!!) Thanks for the recipe :).

This was really delightful (and perfect for the season)! I did use the chopped almonds in the batter. The tartness of the cranberries was nicely offset by the almond extract. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting this! Made for Think Pink Fall 2009 Tag Game.

Made for Gimme 5. We really enjoyed this and I will most definitely make this again. We are big fans of cranberries and love the tart taste of them. The almond extract adds a nice touch. Thanks for posting this Hokies! :D

Yum! This was really good and very pretty too. I used dried craisins that I soaked in hot water to plump them up. They gave this bread a really nice sweet/tart flavor. I'll be making this again for sure. Thanks Hokies!

I did a few changes to make it more healthy. I used splenda, skim milk, unsweetened applesauce instead of butter. But on top, I used the tablespoon of sugar. This bread is so good-looking LOL And smell great. But taste so good. Thanks Melissa. Made for 123 hit wonders

Fantastic bread. I made this a day ago and finishing last of it today, flavor is better next day. Bread keeps a nice light color with contrast of the cranberries, so pretty.

This has an amazing scone-like texture and great flavours. I also found the bake time to be too long. I baked for 45 mins at 375, and only another 20 mins at 350 instead of 30 mins, and still found it to be a slightly overdone on the outside. I will definitely make this again, but I will further reduce the baking time.
