1 cup cranberries (fresh or frozen)

SO HOW'D IT GO?

It was really good! I took a chance and doubled the recipe, glad I did. Instead of just cranberries and walnuts I used dried cranberries, walnuts, pumkin seeds, and chopped dried apricots...also didnt use gratted orange peel cuz lazy. Even my parents liked it, which doesn't normally happen!

Amazingly delicious. I made this for Thanksgiving Day breakfast. I kept the recipe pretty much as-is, except I used applesauce for the egg replacer. I did make a glaze (1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 2 Tbsp orange juice), which I HIGHLY recommend. I will totally be making this over and over again. Thank you!!!

This bread is absolutely delicious - I gave it 5 stars! I used all Whole Wheat Pastry flour. I omitted the walnuts. I drizzled orange flavoured icing over the top. Looks very festive. Thanks for the great recipe!

Did you make the icing or buy it? It looks yummy!

I agree - the icing looks delicious! Phylbea (or anyone else who has a good one), if you could post your recipe, I'd be most grateful - I'm making this bread tonight. Thanks!

Fantastic taste and excellent texture, crusty on the outside, moist and fluffy on the inside.  Love this bread!

This was pretty good. It had a tough crust on it so next time I might cover it with something for the first half and not leave it in so long, because I was hoping for a cakier texture. More orange rind tooo!
Mmmm. really good flavor though!n :D

This is an awesome recipe. Instead of EnerG I used flaxmeal and all I had was dried cranberries so I used them. The loaf turned out splendidly. Looking forward to making it with the fresh cranberries too.

I've made this several times exactly to the specs listed, and it has turned out great every time! A few times, I've made muffins, and those are great too. It's not the holidays until I've made this cranberry bread for family and friends!

I made two loaves following the recipe, except for leaving out the nuts and using dried cranberries soaked in a bit of hot water to plump them up.  (that's what I had.)  I made two loaves as blueberry-lemon bread using frozen blueberries in place of cranberries, soymilk for orange juice, lemon zest for orange peel, and a tablespoon or so of lemon juice.  that version was extremely popular as well.  YUM!  this recipe RULES!  oh, and one hour was too long for my oven - 45 minutes was good, before they started to burn.  burnt-on-the-bottom loaves were still a big hit, though.  thank you for a lovely, adaptable recipe!
