"The combination of sweet and tart in this recipe is amazingly wonderful. I used Splenda for baking and Carbmaster fat free milk in place of the sugars and 2% milk because I'm on Weightwatchers, and used self-rising flour with a little added baking powder because that's what I had on hand. Turned out amazing! I'll definitely save this recipe and make it again."

"I halved the recipe since I didn't need quite so much, but accidentally didn't halve the amount of apple called for and this still turned out fantastic! I also used an entire bag of fresh cranberries chopped finely. These were a hit!"

"Delicious and low-fat. I used half whole wheat flour, and mashed banana for half the sugar. I swirled my leftover Christmas cranberry sauce (instead of chopped cranberries) into the batter right before baking. Yummy!"

"WOW, this is best orange cranberry bread ever! I used walnuts in

place of the apples and added an extra 1/4 cup OJ and used dried cranberries
and it was simply delicious!"
