I've made this twice, and I love the flavor of it. I had a bag of cranberries left from thanksgiving in my freezer, and was looking for something to do with them when I stumbled on this recipe. The first time I made it I didn't have butter, so I used I-Can't-Believe-It's-Not-Butter. Bad move. I've always said I'm a lousy baker. It was crumbly and didn't hold together well, but the flavor was so good I wanted to try it again. I knew it was my fault. I made it again using butter (I imagine you could also use oil) and it was excellent. I love a warm slice of this bread with a cup of tea. Thanks for posting a great recipe.
This is a great bread, and it incorporates 3 superfoods! (cran, orange, nuts) I actually use another recipe which I won't post since it is so similar. The differences: 1 cup sugar, 1 t. salt and 2 T. oil (instead of the butter). So a little less fat - still very moist. My recipe says beat egg well before adding and stir ingredients until well mixed. Bake 55 min at 350. I like to use walnuts.
I made two loafs of this delicious bread. One for us and one to take Christmas morning to my niece's home. I dusted to top with powdered sugar before serving. I also made Cranberry, Orange, Pecan butter recipe #510336 to go with it. This was delicious. Everyone raved about it. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. I will be making this ofter. I have cranberries in the freezer now.
