This is my favorite quick bread recipe. There's just something about it that hits the spot. I like the texture of this bread better made with oil than butter, but try both, everyone's taste is different.

I followed the recipe exactly, using oil as recommended. Everything worked perfectly. This is a very sophisticated quick bread w/ the orange peel and the cranberries. The kids didn't like it, but I thought it was quite good. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
