Excellent bread

Moist (with the banana) and crunchy (with the nuts and cranberries). Very good heated up.


I used suggestions made by others by adding 1 tsp vanilla and substituting half and half for the milk. The bread looks wonderful and tastes so rich. The cranberries are tangy and gives the bland bananas zip. My new favorite.

amazing bake

DJ from Boise, ID

First time baking was amazing! Definitely keeping this recipe close!

Tastes Amazing!

I added chocolate chips to counteract the sourness of the cranberries and it tasted so good! Even the batter was really great

Tasty for holidays or anytime

Cynthia from Camden, ME

Very yummy. I omitted nuts, in lieu of milk added 1/4c Greek yogurt, 1/4c orange juice, and fresh zest of one large navel orange. Bright and fresh tasting. Thanks Ocean Spray...I will be back for more ideas.
