Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture, and stir until just blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.

This is such a delicious quick bread. I really like the suggestion of one reviewer who wrote that she left the cranberries whole... that way you get the maximum flavor. I quess my only (very small) complaint about this bread was that I wanted more cranberries. I would probably double the amount next time. Thank you Karin for submitting this recipe! p.s. I made another batch and baked it as mini loaves... recipe made 4; they were done in 25 min.... love this recipe! Read More

This bread was wonderful! After greasing the pan, I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar in the pan to give the crust a sweet crunch. I sprinkled some extra chopped walnuts and some "sugar in the raw" on top before baking, and it really does look like a picture! Tastes great and a beautiful holiday bread. Takes no time to whip together too! Read More

Excellent and Easy. This is the recipe on the back of the cranberry bags. Other than doubling the amount to 2 cups of berries and keeping them whole, I don't change a thing. Don't overbake. 50 min. exactly is right. If the dough is too stiff, add a few tablespoon of milk to moisten it up. TIP - for a prettier bread, place some cranberries on top of the batter before you bake it. The red color on top adds a gorgeous appearance to the bread. I also glaze mine with a lemon glaze. The glaze gives it a little tart flavor on top and keeps the bread moist. (glaze - lemon juice and powdered sugar). Glaze while warm. Read More

Very tasty fruity bread. I doubled the recipe and baked it in "little loaf" pans 5 3/4 x 3 x 2 1/8 for 30 minutes. It made 5 little loaves. Read More

This bread was fabulous! I thought that the orange flavor, from the juice AND zest, might be a bit strong, but it wasn't--it complimented the tang of the cranberries beautifully, so don't skimp on the orange zest...I took other reviewers' advice and used whole cranberries (increased to 1 1/4 cup) and it was perfect. Looks beautiful and tastes moist and flavorful--well worth making. Read More

SUGGESTIONS: you can add one more egg if you want or increase the amount of cranberries or decrease the sugar to add some tablespoon of orange juice concentrate! Delicious! Read More

This is so good! I made it on Thanksgiving day and everyone love it. My husband love it so much that he went to the market to grab me 2 more bags of cranberries. I also try to make it using the muffin pan and baked in the oven for about 22 mins and it came out good as well. Read More
