Best Bread Ever!

becky from Muskegon, Michigan

I first tried this at a Bed and Breakfast in Vermont in the early 1970's. I have been making every Holiday since, especially at Christmas.

The Best

Monica from Tallahassee, Florida

I have been making this classic for almost 15 years. It is a must have in my home every Thanksgiving!

Bar None -- THE BEST

Deborah from Freeport, Maine

For well 50 years I have been making this bread. This is THE BEST, excellent texture, flavor. Love the cranberries coursely chopped and the orange rind peel -- yum! Leftovers are grilled in slices for breakfast.

It is not my way or the highway

I use the whole bag of cranberries, unchopped, and 3/4 cups of walnuts. I split the dough between two 8" X 4" loaf pans. I first cream the butter (shortening) with the sugar, then add eggs, then OJ, then dry ingredients.

question

For those of you who have made this recipe: Do you mix all ingredients by hand or using a mixer?? Do you need to melt the shortening or just mix it in by hand?
