This is always a winner! We make this every year and people love it. Thanks for posting this.
You can't go wrong with the cranberry/orange combination! We enjoyed this quick bread for breakfast this morning. I used a freshly squeezed orange for the juice (plus about 1/8 cup white grape juice to make the 3/4 cup needed) & zested the whole orange. DS said I went a little wild with the orange zest but other than that we all really liked this bread. I liked that the crust was a nice light crunch, but not hard & dense. The interior was moist & tender. Thanks for posting, Suzy Q 2! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef.

Very tasty bread! Light, not too dense like some other breads. I used freshly grated orange peel for some additional zest. I used it for a "healthy bake sale" at my college with great results.
I also used this recipe from the cranberry bag and make it every year. We love it.
