Had the texture more like a pound cake rather than a quick bread. My boyfriend enjoyed it, but the texture threw me for a loop. (I’m not a fan of cakes) As for the flavor, I would put even more cranberries because I could only taste orange and I’d like to be able to taste both.

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!
