Wonderful Cranberry Bread - an absolute keeper. I looked at the reviews and used everyone's ideas: used pecans and covered with a simple orange glaze made with one cup icing sugar + 1 tbsp orange juice. I always cut oil by half and add applesauce instead - yummy and moist and less fattening. This has a nice light taste and the right balance between tart and sweet - even better the 2nd day. I'm glad it makes 2 loaves since we are just about done the first one in one day! Wonderful - will be part of my permanent collection.
Found it to be a little dry...will sub applesauce for the oil next time.
Awesome! The best cranberry bread I have ever had but I did make a few changes to it. I omitted the lemon zest and the nuts (don't like either) and used two teaspoons of almond extract instead of vanilla. The almond extract made it absolutely amazing. I did chop the cranberries quite fine in the food processor after reading other reviews and the loaves are not tart at all.
Excellent bread. I followed recipe exactly, using orange zest vs lemon. A very nice balance between sweet and tart. I will make again, though next time I will use my food processor to rough chop the cranberries, as I think it took me 10 minutes to do that alone. Thanks for posting, will make again.
Delicious. I used the two loaf recipe in a bundt pan instead and just increased the baking time. Also, I topped it with a simple glaze using powdered sugar, a bit of orange extract and milk. My mom took some to her work and my husband took some to his and I got a lot of compliments and a few requests for the recipe. Easily five stars for taste and ease to make.
This recipe was great, although I did increase the sugar to 2 cups and added orange zest or orange oil, depending what I had on had, then just tasted the batter to be sure. I made this into 5 mini loaves and baked many batches for Christmas and gave as gifts. I just sprinkled the top with powdered sugar. Warm or cooled, this recipe is definitely a keeper.
I tried this recipe, came out so good, after reading other reviews, i made couple of changes in the oiginal recipe, I chopped the cranberries in the food processor, added little etra sugar and added chopped dates instead of nuts, it was devine....
This recipe was easy and tastes great. We used the leftover cranberries from making homemade jellied cranberry sauce and it worked perfect in this recipe.
This was yummy. I added orange zest to mine and added the juice of the orange as well. I love cinnamon so had to add a teaspoon of that too. One thing I didnt do was chop the cranberries enough and had some big chunks. Overall I really liked this recipe.Thanks
Everything a cranberry bread should be-just the right amount of tartness. Moist & delicious from the oven and toasting the remaining slices made it even better.
