Low-Fat Glazed Cranberry Mini Loaves

"These bake out very high with a nice point on top and are extremely moist with lots of flavor, no one would ever guess they are low fat! ---fresh or frozen blueberries may be used in place of cranberries but do not chop the blueberries--- I have yield at 20 (10 slices per loaf) this is of coarse only estimated it will depend on the size you slice the loaves --- you may omit the glaze if desired --- depending if you are using sweetened or unsweetened orange juice you may want to adjust the sugar amount, I used unsweetened orange with 1 cup sugar and found that to be the perfect sweetness."

  1. Made for Easter dinner and was enjoyed by all! Each bite was very moist and full of flavor with pretty spots of cranberyy color. I got exactly 10 slices from each loaf. The glaze is lovely and makes it almost like a dessert type bread, enjoyed with coffee or tea. No glaze is necessary to totally fall in love with this! Thanks again, Kitten!
  2. You know, I love KittenCal's recipes, they are always good! But a lowfat KittenCal recipe? hmmmm, well not sure I buy it, but I did try it and it is delicious. Good job! As always!
