Delicious holiday bread, but it would be great any time. I buy and freeze fresh cranberries so I have them throughout the year. For this recipe, I used fresh cranberries and I made it exactly as written. My mini pans are for 4 loafs, so I used two regular loaf pans instead. This recipe will definitely be added to my favorites file. Made for PRMR, December, 2012.
