This is a very simple to make loaf that tastes soooo good!. The orange juice is a lovely accent and the berries supply a nice tart nip. This was made today for Thanksgiving (Canada) and it was quickly inhaled by folks I wanted to keep out of the kitchen, LOL. I did take a slice before giving it to the others, thank goodness! I would certainly make this again...and likely will before Christmas. :D
