Reviews for Orange-Cranberry Nut Bread
"This recipe also makes 1 dozen muffins. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes."
"If you like cranberry and citris, you will love it. I was given cranberry bread for my Thanksgiving dinner project. This sounded like the one my mom always made. I made it and was nervous because I am not a baker. It came out wonderful, the bread basket on Thanksgiving was empty, and everybody wanted it for breakfast the next day! It is easy, will make a great gift, and trust me your bread basket will be empty to!!"
