Not what I expected

Kay from Ellicott City, MD

I confused the title "Bread" with "Cake". When I made this bread I was expecting a result like banana bread - more of a cake than bread. This is truly a bread. I can feature it spread with cream cheese to serve with coffee and it is good of type but I was looking for a recipe to bake in smaller pans to give as gifts to neighbors. Adults might like it but children might not.

Awesome. Yummier with butter will make again for sure. Used frozen cranberries. Convection oven time 35 minutes cooking

Nutritional value for Delish

If you get 8 servings from this receipe it would come out to 272 cal per slice :)


I've shared this bread with a number of people who raved it's the best they've ever tasted. Excellent recipe! I substituted orange for lemon, but this time when I make it I will use lemon. I also used a cup of fresh cranberries and the called-for dried craisins.


Used frozen chopped cranberries and it turned out fabulously. Definitely make it again. Would like to know the nutritional info tho.
