Very nice way to use craisins! I used canola oil instead of shortening and used slightly more than two tablespoons.

This very easy recipe produced a wonderful, moist loaf. I used regular Craisins and was out of walnuts so I put the same measure of choppes pecans. I should have doubled this recipe! The first loaf is almost gone! We enjoyed this for breakfast this morning with scrambled eggs and fruit. YUM!! Thanks Kim!

This bread stays soft and moist for a lot longer than most quick breads and it's delicious. The orange flavor is amazing! Thank you!
