    Caryn's Note:

    Another favorite quick bread that my mom made when I was a child. I often make small tins of my apricot nut bread, pumpkin bread, and cranberry bread to give as teacher gifts, along with the recipe for each, during the holidays.

      Caryn, I made your bread as a contribution to my DH "Goody Day" at work. It was a sensation down to the last crumb. All I got back was a very clean pan. It's a keeper! Thanks!

      nice and moist. I halved the recipe and used one egg. If I made it again, making two loaves, I would add two eggs instead of one. Also added some dried cranberries and probably more orange peel than called for since didn't really measure it. delicious!
