I've been trying to decide what to say here, but I guess honesty is the best policy. I increased the amount of cranberries - more of a good thing, right? - and that seems to have been a mistake. Based on the bread I have in my kitchen, I'd say 4 stars, because it is too tart for me. But if I hadn't fiddled with the recipe instead of following it, more stars are quite possible. So, I don't want to assign stars at this point. I do want to say that this is wonderfully easy to make. Thank you for posting the recipe. Next time I'll follow it.
