Lovely moist bread with some unique flavors that went together so easy. I did add some walnuts to the mixture and I think that added to it. I also cut the sugr down to 2 cups and that was plenty sweet for us. I was a little shocked at the amount of oil, but it seemed to work well with the recipe. I made in mini loafs and then froze most of them to use this holiday season when we have guests drop in.
I've made this recipe for years, but my copy has 3/4 C. oil and 3/4 C. orange juice, which would be less fat than the recipe as posted here. I also use about 2 cups fresh cranberries and also 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts. As you can see from my photos, it is a moist loaf that is nicely colored with fruit and nuts.
This is fantastic!!! I used apple juice instead of orange. I doubled it and made 2 cranberry loaves, one chocolate chip loaf and one pecan loaf- all were great.
*update: I made this again this year and tried the suggestion of 3/4 cup orange juice and 3/4 cup oil. I also reduced the sugar to 2 cups and upped the cranberries to 2 cups. i used whole wheat pastry flour and it was awesome! definitely sweet enough and didn't taste like "healthy" bread.
I love this bread!This is the pumkin bread recipe I've been using for years now so I thought I should review it.This bread has the most amazing flavor with the perfect amount of spices.I don't know why I bother trying other recipes because they are never as good.I usually try to use fresh cranberries but when they're not in season frozen works well too.I don't even bother chopping them I just cut them in half or them whole..either way is good.I usally bake mine in 6 mini loaf pans.I always make this recipe exactly as written and its so moist and delicious every time.Everyone loves it!
I found this recipe on Nestle's site before finding it on Recipezaar. I have made this MANY times and it always turns out fantastic! I usually use Craisins which I buy at Costco. The orange flavored Craisins are best, but are more expensive at regular grocery stores. The last time I made it, I used 3 teaspoons of baking powder and left out the baking soda and thought it had better flavor and rose better. Justtakealook82, thanks for posting to Zaar. It makes it really convenient to find the recipe!
This is wonderful! A coworker brought two loaves of this in at my old job. I probably had four slices of this stuff, and that was right after breakfast! I of course asked for the recipe. I usually make a batch before Thanksgiving and another before Christmas. It's perfect to grab a slice on those busy holiday mornings! I do use 1 1/2 cups white sugar and 1 1/2 cups brown sugar, but that's just my preference.
I make this every Christmas to take to several families, my children's teachers and my local postman and newpaper delivery person. I make it in mini loaves. What a FANTASTIC bread!
