  1. Delicious, we love the sweet and tangy taste. It is really chucked full of Cranberries. My husband likes it toasted. I doubled the recipe and made 2 loaves. Worked out great. Makes a nice bread to make for gifts. Thank you Inez.
  2. Lovely loaf!! love the orange, cranberry, walnut combination. Have put it away in the freezer, it will be great to have there for emergencies over the holidays. I will probably make a couple more to give as small gifts. Thanks for sharing.
  3. This is the best recipe! First of all, I love it that it only has 1/4 cup butter in the whole recipe. That was my main reason for trying it. But let me just say that it is so super easy to put together. I followed the recipe exactly except baked it in my stoneware pan that has four mini loaf sections. Baked them for about 35- 40 minutes. I apparently can't wait for it to cool as I just cut myself a second slice. Thanks so much! KCShell
  4. Super easy to make - and they made wonderful gifts for the holiday! I made them into mini loaves - and baked for 34-40 minutes. Fantastic recipe - will definitely make again!
  5. Delicious cranberry nut bread. I used frozen berries because there are no fresh ones here in the desert. I like the flavor of the butter in this recipe better than the bland vegetable oil called for in my old standard. Very nice. Thanks.


  1. I just tasted this bread, goodness it's yummmo! I made it in individual bunt pans I also used baking Pam and sprinkled with a little turbine sugar before i put in the batter. The only substution I did was use Craisins instead of fresh cranberry. I cooked them for like 23 minutes in those small pans as stated. These will become staples on my gift trays, I am sure!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
