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.

i gave this to my friends for our holiday dinner and i thought it was absolutely delicious! Some of them are not into tart items, so it may not be the best to give someone with a real sweet tooth. One quick tip would be to let the batter sit for a few minutes to let it thicken up. This will give you a nice "bread dome". I didn't wait for one batch to thicken and it just had a flat-top (didn't affect the flavor, just the presentation).

Just made this up on the weekend to use up some fresh cranberries, a real winner. Did not make the glaze, DH likes to have his slices buttered, I loved it just as is, a keeper!!

This bread was so very good and easy to bring together. I had a bag of cranberries in the freezer that I had to use up. One bag made 2 loaves. I used up some leftover slivered almonds for the nuts. And all I had on hand was blood orange juice so my bread and my icing came out pink. The blood orange juice balanced out the tartness of the fresh cranberries perfectly. All the guys at my husband's work gave you (and me) 2 big thumbs way up. I will definately make this again, thanks for the great recipe. Pooh Bear

Everyone loves this! I made this after Thanksgiving and used my leftover homemade whole cranberry sauce instead of fresh cranberries. I also reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup only because my cranberry sauce was sweetened. I will be giving this to all of my neighbors as Christmas gifts.

We just got through making 48 mini loaves of this bread for a school fund-raiser. It was the most requested bread, lemon-poppy seed (Lemon Poppy Seed Quick Bread)being the second. This is one incredible bread! The flavor is absolutely wonderful. It's a perfect bread for the Thanksgiving/Christmas holidays, and as winkki stated, good enough to eat any time of the year. Thanks winkki, we'll be making it for years to come. One recipe makes about 6 mini loaves.

Easy and delicious! I used fresh cranberries. I used about 10 drops of orange essential oil from doTerra because I didn't have juice or rind and turned out great (added water to make up liquid difference).
