This has a nice, chewy texture, and just the right balance between tart and sweet. I used half Splenda, half sugar. My only regret is cutting the recipe in half and only getting one loaf! I will make two next time and freeze one! Thanks for posting this!

This was good bread, however I would have liked it to rise better, the bread was a bit on the dense side, but the flavor was there! Thanks Paula!...Kitten:)

A yummy loaf. I used 1/2 splenda, 1/2 sugar and it turned out great...I think 1 1/2 C of cranberries would have been enough...was more cranberry & nuts than bread! Still delicious!
