Very nice. For once, I followed the directions to bake in the bread machine and it made for a lovely loaf. However, I'll probably try this in the oven next time--I just prefer oven baked bread. Still, this rose perfectly and baked very well in the bread machine, so it's a great bread for a bread machine. I did modify it slightly and used 1/2 orange juice in place of the water. Delish! Also, a note for anyone using their bread machine for the first or second time . . .if you have a fruit/nut beep, wait to add the craisins until you hear the beep. It works well that way. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was an excellent recipe but I went with 4 stars only because I made a few changes. I substituted orange juice for the water and added about 2 tsp. of orange zest. Even with the changes the orange flavor although present was not overly strong. The cranberries chewy and adding a nice tang. Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I plan to make it for work this week and for Christmas morning. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Very good when fresh and still warm. Not so much the next day as with most home baked bread. Used bread flour subbed o.j. for the water and the zest of 1 orange for the oil (not gonna go out and get orange oil just for this) the orange flavor came out very nicely. I think leftovers would have made a lovely and unique bread pudding. But my irritation to my family not eating this loaf led me to just toss it. It was good though not very sweet and perfect for toast with jam or to make French toast. Read More

Had to make a few substitutions. I only had enough bread flour to make the recipe so I used 3 C. minus 2TB of it. I also didn't have yogurt so I soured 3/4 C. milk with 1 TB of vinegar. I ALSO didn't have any honey so I used molasses instead. I threw everything in the bread machine at the beginning as directed and it was fantastic. It smells wonderful and tastes great. I will definitely be making this again! Read More

Based on the reviews I made some changes. I used the zest and juice from jtwo oranges. The juice replaced the water called for in the recipe. I used a small cup of yogurt and added water to make the required amount. On the 3rd time I made this I added about 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and I used the dough setting on my bread machine and baked in the oven. We really like this bread but be warned it is a dense bread. Really good toasted with orange marmalade. I will use it for French Toast next time I make it. Read More

I followed the advice of several reviewers and swapped orange juice for the water in this recipe. Even with that change there was not enough orange flavor for me in this recipe. The bread came out pleasantly chewy there was plenty of cranberry flavor but I'd have preferred more orange flavor. Read More
