    winkki's Note:

    This is my husband's very favorite quick bread I make, a great holiday gift, and is my most-requested at parties, especially around the holidays. It originally came from the Betty Crocker Cookbook, but I usually omit the nuts (although I love pecans with the cranberries) and have added a glaze onto it, which really seemed to give it that extra little zing. When I serve it for parties or brunches, I slice it, then cut the slices in half top to bottom; people seem satified with the smaller pieces (though they often go back for more!) and it serves more that way. I always try to keep a bag of cranberries in the freezer for just this recipe.

      winkki, the winner...I am always on the lookout for good, tasty loaves to contribute to bake sales for church functions...this one certainly qualifies as being particularly good...just enough combination of ingredients to create enticing aroma throughout the house during the baking process... Because of health implications, I must use a sugar substitute for my own enjoyment and it works well; when baking additional loaves for bake sales, I shall follow your recipe and use refined sugar....thank you winkki for taking time out to post this recipe, and I look forward to your additional contributions...pofta buna

      For the past three years, I have made this recipe for Sunday School teachers, neighbors and school teachers. I know it seems unreal but I bake 50 loaves of this bread to give it away and each time it is so appreciate. The taste is so unique.

      This was very easy, moist, and delicious! I doubled the recipe ... no nuts as my daughter can't have them yet ... and I skipped the glaze. I used six (6) mini loaf pans (3 x 5-3/4) and baked for exactly 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
