Reviews for Cranberry Oat Bread
"This is just the best. Wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for the great recipe."
"Really liked this bread - nicely moist and great flavor. I also put the cranberries in at the beginning and it worked wonderfully."
"Gently sweet. Great soft texture and the cinnamon adds just the right amount of spice."
"Best bread machine fruit bread recipe I've tried so far. Perfect level of flavor and sweetness. I will make this again soon."
"We all loved this bread! I did omit the cinnamon for personal preference."
"I have had to make this bread every day since I found this recipe because my kids devour it!I did make a few modifications...My kids do not like the cranberries & I did not have raisins, so I omitted them - so it's basically a cinnamon bread - love it!The second time I made it I ran out of honey, so I used Agave syrup - even better!"
"Excellent recipe. The cranberries and cinnamon add wonderful flavors to this bread. Great accent to an evening meal or breakfast. Leftovers are great toasted!"
"I make this bread over and over. We never get tired of it. It is delicious and so easy. Sometimes I make it with the dried cranberries, other times with raisins. The only thing I do differently is to add the dried fruit along with all of the other ingredients. It chops them up a bit, but that is fine with us as it spreads their flavor throughout the loaf."
"We also love this bread without the cinnamon and cranberries...it makes a great oatmeal bread for dinner! The recipe made normal is also fabulous frosted and toasted! We LOVE this recipe!"
"Toasted and buttered, a slice or two of this bread is excellent with a cup of hot tea."
