Top Review by papergoddess

I've made this twice, and I love the flavor of it. I had a bag of cranberries left from thanksgiving in my freezer, and was looking for something to do with them when I stumbled on this recipe. The first time I made it I didn't have butter, so I used I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Butter. Bad move. I've always said I'm a lousy baker. It was crumbly and didn't hold together well, but the flavor was so good I wanted to try it again. I knew it was my fault. I made it again using butter (I imagine you could also use oil) and it was excellent. I love a warm slice of this bread with a cup of tea. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
