Sue, this was so pretty when cut into slices. Lovely golden brown on the edges. The taste is a classic. Sweetness of the bread and the pleasant tartness of the cranberry and zesty taste of the orange. I actually made 2 of these loaves. One to eat immediately, and one to freeze for Thanksgiving. We really, really, enjoyed this. Thanks so much for the wonderful additon to my tried & true cookbook. You are right....they will make wonderful gifts at Christmas time. How cheery!

I wanted to make an orange cranberry bread similar to the one a coffee shop I like serves. This recipe is slightly better! It is very moist. The batter will definitely be very very stiff, but it turns out wonderfully. I like to sprinkly the top with some sugar for a little crunch. I would recommend lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper for easy removal.

I've been using this recipe every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I just love it. :o) I do add more sugar though, just my personal preference. :o)

I made this bread for Thanksgiving, it was a hit! My grandmother, aunts, uncle all raved about it. The texture of the bread reminded me of the irish soda bread my mom makes, I thought it was absolutely delicious and will be making this again an again.

Gorgeous color, soft and moist, very pretty when sliced...delicious. The edges and bottom was a bit dark by the time the batter was done, but I just scraped it off with a knife. Would make a great christmas gift. Oh and we had it with cream cheese too as suggested...delish!

My first cranberry bread is a success. I think I might have cooked it a little long...a bad experience with a banana bread earlier in life... but it was still great. Made a double batch and took a loaf to Thanksgiving for morning after breakfast. Everyone loved it. I especially liked it sliced very thin with a slight film of butter or cream cheese.
