Reviews for Orange-Chip Cranberry Bread
"Love this recipe. I can get 4 mini loaves from this. Because I have a small oven, I bake for 20 min. Then rotate the pan and bake another 20 min. Everybody loves it, even folks who jav never had it before."
"I used white chocolate chips and this sweet, tart "bread" is really delicious! I'll definitely make it again."
