WOW, this is lovely to look at and still better to eat! I replaced all sugar with Splenda and proceeded. It was fun to make (I love playing with dough) and turned out to be teriffic. It rose beautifully and really just couldn't be more Christmas perfect. Made for Sweet December Game 2013.

I loved this bread. It was fairly easy and fun to make (I'm an average cook to say the least) and my two young daughters helped along the way. I followed the recipe exactly but I doubled it and made 8 mini loafs as gifts for our neighbors. The cooking time was about 25 to 30 minutes for little loafs. We all think it's a perfect Holiday bread and we will definitely make it again next year!

This turned out amazing! As prior reviewers mentioned, it looks very pretty and tastes amazing. We liked it so much that I'm already making another one! Instructions easy to follow. We left out the walnuts, due to nut allergies, but it was still so good! This is a holiday keeper!

Wow! This bread is a treat for the senses. I've not had a lot of experience with yeast breads so my first attempt may not be as beautiful as other cooks but as much as the family loved it, I will get plenty of chances to perfect my technique. Knowing some members of the family would not care for whole cranberries, I ground mine before cooking the filling. I also put in almond slices rather than walnuts, again due to family preferences. Both changes worked out beautifully and the family gives it two thumbs up!

This makes a moist sweet bread swirled with wonderful tart cranberries. It looks great when it's sliced also. I added a bit of cinnamon and cloves to the filling. Thanks for sharing!
