Reviews for Tart Cranberry Quick Bread
"Great recipe. I amped it up with 1 T of orange zest, cut the cranberries into smaller bits and made the into mini muffins. Hubby loves them!"
"I made these for family for Christmas. I love cranberry bread and this recipe was perfect."
"So easy and tasty. I made two loaves with cranberries and then substituted blueberries for the third loaf."
"I sat down to read my Healthy Cooking yesterday while watching college football. I saw this recipe and remembered I had about 2 cups of cranberries leftover that I hadn't used with our Thanksgiving cranberry salad. So, my son and I baked two loaves of this bread. We had one with supper last night, and I gave the other way to some relatives we met for breakfast this morning. I will be making several of these for holiday gifts. I like that it is tart and not to sweet. Great recipe!"
"This bread was super easy to make and my family and friends raved about it! They thought for sure I had bought it from a bakery. I will be making this again and again!"
