BB really loved the flavors of this recipe! I made one for our home and one for the neighbors. DELICIOSO! I did watch for liquid as reviews posted and did use a smidge over the 1/4 c posted. I will make this often as it really does meld so nice in flavor. Toasted some this morning for breakfast and holy wonderful! melted butter and a smidge of homemade strawberry jam. More for tomorrow left so I am a happy woman. Made for Cookathon in your and Ed's honour.

Not nearly enough liquid in this recipe to make it work. Am giving it 3 stars for the flavor after I managed to salvage the batter by adding 3/4 cup of light cream. At the classic recipe for CLASSIC CRANBERRY NUT BREAD calls for 1 1/2 cups cranberries and 3/4 cup orange juice.

This the recipe that brought me to Recipezaar almost 6 years ago. Everyone at work loved this bread and so did my family. I plan on making again at Christmas time this year.
