This bread was moist, great size. I did add some chopped canned pineapple. Very good.
Simple, but good, although I used a sugar substitute and it was fine.
This is the standard Cranberry Bread Recipe that has appeared on the Ocean Spray cranberry bag for years. It is easy to make and very flavorful (with or without the nuts). I've never had a problem with it coming out wonderfully. The batter can also be put into 2 small loaf pans or 4 mini loaf pans. Of course, the time will need to be adjusted.
Very Bland and Looked Raw When Cooked
I was disappointed in this bread. It was very bland tasting and actually looked almost raw when cooked. Granted some of the "raw" look is because it is cranberry based and would naturally be red in color but it didn't brown at all. The taste was bland as well. Not something I would recommend or repeat.
Excellent for gifts
I made a few alterations to the recipe. In exchange of 1 cup of white flour, I substitured 1 cup of whole wheat pastry flour and I swaped out 1/3 of a cup of cranberry sauce for 1/3 cup of banana. I used the extra sauce to make a white chocolate cranberry glaze by melting a 1/3 of a cup of white chocolate chips into the cranberry sauce. I also added 1t of butter, 1/4t of lemon extract and 2T of corn syrup to the glaze to keep it soft, but you could leave out for a firmer glaze. I also prepared them as muffins to conserve time which took about 20-25 minutes, check with toothpick. These were hits with my teenage daughter and her friends. I will be making these as gifts for the holiday. Plus my house smells great!
