  1. Very nice way to use craisins! I used canola oil instead of shortening and used slightly more than two tablespoons.
     
  2. This very easy recipe produced a wonderful, moist loaf. I used regular Craisins and was out of walnuts so I put the same measure of choppes pecans. I should have doubled this recipe! The first loaf is almost gone! We enjoyed this for breakfast this morning with scrambled eggs and fruit. YUM!! Thanks Kim!
     
  3. I added 1 TB of Grand Marnier because I had some on hand, substituted dark brown sugar for half of the sugar, and 2-1/2TB butter for the shortening. Only needed 45 minutes in my oven. It was very tasty, worth making again!
     
  4. if i do not have orange juice or zest may i use a tablespoon of vanilla extract to add to the flavor
     
  5. This bread stays soft and moist for a lot longer than most quick breads and it's delicious. The orange flavor is amazing! Thank you!
