Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread Recipe

Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread Recipe

Coming from Oregon, a state famous for its cranberries, this bread is a given at our house. Each fall my husband and I scrounge around for walnuts to go in it. It's a regular on our table, and not just at Thanksgiving. I freeze the berries so I have a ready supply all year long. —Elaine Kremenak, Grants Pass, Oregon

"Excellent! So quick and easy to whip up. I make one and get it in the oven and mix up a second one in the same bowl, only takes a couple of minutes. It freezes so well too. Janet. VFE"

"I made this bread for my husband, while we were dating. He loved it so much that I made him another loaf, this time sharing it with his family as well. His mom, now my mother-in-law, enjoyed it so much that I shared the recipe with her."
