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.

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!

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!

This is SO good! I replaced 1 cup of bread flour with wheat flour, and added some dried currants to make up for not enough dried cranberries. I also added about 1/4 cup sugar along with honey and baked it in the oven.

Thanks for this excellent recipe. We have been buying cranberry-orange bread at "Costco" (quite expensive), but this is as good.

Made this bread for holiday gift giving. It's delicous. My only changes were to use half whole wheat flour and toasted pecans in place of the walnuts as I had some leftover from another recipe. Great toasted for breakfast. Will definitely make again.

I loved this recipe but I do not have a bread machine! I converted this to the traditional method, and thought I would share it: 1 cup orange juice 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast, proofed by package directions 3 cups bread flour 1 tablespoon dry milk powder 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 tablespoons grated orange zest 1 1/2 cups sweetened dried cranberries Proof the yeast according to package directions. Allow it to sit until thick and frothy. Combine Orange Juice, vegetable oil and yeast, set aside. In a seperate bowl, combine all dry ingredients, orange zest and cranberries and add gradually to wet ingredients. Combine as well as you can, then knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and soft. Place back into the bowl, cover, and leave in a warm area to rise until doubled. When dough has risen, punch it down and shape into a loaf. Place it in a greased loaf pan, or, for a round loaf, on a greased baking sheet. Rise again until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees for around 45-50 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.

I made this yesterday in my bread machine, ate the last few slices for breakfast this morning toasted and spread with cream cheese, it was great!!! I used fresh squeezed orange juice and cranberries and walnuts, accidentally used too much allspice and it was still wonderful. I will definately make this again!

Very good! Love the flavors and texture the walnuts add. Did substitute 1 c whole wheat flour and soaked cranberries in warm water before adding. Definitely will be making again.
