Review This Recipe
easy and good
I spent the weekend at my sister's and had the recipe with me. We both thought it sounded good so I made it, we loved it. The next morning it was even better without toasting it. Thank you.
CRANBERRY ORANGE TOASTED BREAD
LOST MY RECIPE AND WAS SO HAPPY TO FIND IT AGAIN. MY FAMILY LOVES THIS BREAD. TRY RECIPE WITH 1 CUP GROUND FRESH CRANBERRIES WITH 4 TBSP. SUGAR AND GRATED ORANGE PEEL. WOW.
A bit sweet, though. And annoying that the recipe doesn't use the canned ingredients in whole cans. I end up throwing away the rest of the cranberry sauce.
easy and healthy
Was a easy recipe and a great breakfast change. Moist and flavorful. A hearty bread to enjoy with a cup of coffee. My husband loved it so much that I now make two loaves, one to pack slices in his lunch.
More Cranberry Flavor
I tried this recipe hoping that it would be packed with flavor. Without the added orange spread, the bread is lacking. The texture was good but I thought that it should have been moister.
So easy, and good too!
The whole family loved it! I even made a batch adding some extra dried cranberries and chopped pecans. The canned cranberry sauce really gives it a great flavor and extra moisture.
Cranberry Orange toasted bread
this was by far the best recipe I have ever encountered for cranberry bread. It is even good not toasted.
I made this bread last week. It was good, but not like I thought it would be. I was hoping for more orange flavor. I even added about 3 Tbsp. fresh squeezed orange juice. I didn't do the orange spread, maybe that would have made it better. Instead I made an orange glaze for the top and that was very good. I don't think this will be one of my "keepers".
Long Time Favorite
I lost my personal recipe for this bread a couple of years ago. I have been looking for one similar for awhile and many were close but not right. I am so happy to finally find a recipe that had all the ingredients that I remember. I love to bake these as mini loaves and give away in Holiday Goody Baskets to my family and friends.
Finally this year I'll be able to include this long time favorite again!
VERY GOOD AND QUITE SIMPLE TO PREPARE. DEFINITELY THIS WILL BE A PART OF OUR HOLIDAY DINING AND GIFT GIVING. THANKS
