    This is the first cranberry bread recipe I've had success with from scratch! It's very simple to make with the bread maker. I leave out the walnuts though as I'm not used to having walnuts with cranberry bread. Juicy in the middle and yet fluffy like a cake. Just perfect! I make it for my hubby who is American and lives in Australia now, he misses this bread but not anymore! Many thanks.  -  08 Dec 2012


    Now a family favorite! I made this the first time, but threw in about 1/8C sugar because I feared the "yeast" would not do its thing without sugar! The second time, I followed another reviewer's advice and increased the cranberries and the walnuts, and I like it even better. I also discovered that this bread is actually better after a couple of days....the problem is, it doesn't last that long!!!! Thanks for sharing!  -  15 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've made this recipe 3 times now and it is absolutely wonderful. Based on my first "trial run" of the recipe, I recommend adding an additional 1/2 cup cranberries and 1/3 cup walnuts. I made the recipe 2 more times with those additional ingredients and it got rave reviews!  -  16 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
