    Jenny Sanders's Note:

    Three delightful flavours get together in this tasty loaf cake, and set each other off nicely. This cake keeps well, and is actually better once it has sat for a day or two.

      Hi Jen... made your Cranberry-poppyseed loaf tonight, and it turned out wonderful, my DH just devoured half of the cake with his tea, he just loved it.... great texture and rose very high with a nice high top in the center, just the way I like it. I took a chance with frozen cranberries, cause that is what I had in my freezer from Christmas, and added a little more sugar, cause myself and DH have a sweet tooth, the addition of orange juice gave it a really nice flavor. This is a 5 star all the way. I will be making this again very soon. Keep up the good work! thanx for sharing a wonderful recipe :-)

      Great recipe Jenny.I like it because it is low in fat and uses whole wheat flour. Followed the recipe exactly and turned out wonderful. Thanks Jenny.

      DH loved the mini loaves. This recipe made 3 of them, and took about 40 minutes to have a toothpick come out clean. There were too many poppy seeds, so next time I'll cut back by almost half. Thanks for a good holiday loaf! /Tia
