Recipe by newspapergal

My boss makes this bread every holiday season, and it is soooo good. I couldn't believe my life was devoid of cranberry bread before I met my boss! :) *note - this makes 2 loaves of bread *note2 - the bread requires 2 days of refrigeration before serving. (and it freezes really really well)
