    - Carla -'s Note:

    We always have a lot of people visiting during the holiday season and it's always nice to have a little something homemade on hand to offer. This bread is nice to give away as gifts during the holidays. Delicious plain, with butter or with cream cheese (<-- my personal favorite). Thank you mom for this recipe. :)

      This is a wonderful holiday bread. I make it every year and give some of the loaves to my close friends and neighbors who look forward to this special treat. It is especially delicious served with a hot cup of Christmas tea.

      Boo, nut haters! The walnuts in here make this loaf awesome. I only had 1 c. of fresh cranberries, so instead I microwaved 3/4 c. dried ones with 2 Tbsp. brandy & water to cover for 1 min. I also added 1 Tbsp. orange zest, which went well.

      Excellent bread. Easy to make. No substitutions needed. If you are running low on fresh cranberries it comes out well with a combination of fresh and dried berries (but the fresh are best, as they give it such a tang). I also once made it with hazelnuts instead of walnuts- very good. To make for a lactose intolerant friend I substituted canola oil for the butter. When fresh cranberries are no longer available, I enjoy this bread year-round with fresh blueberries or frozen cherries.
