Flavour burst!!  Talk about great color, flavor & just Delicious! This bread should really be called “Cranberry Orange Peel Raisin Nut Bread”… But I can see how that could be a bit excessive!
“Hey, whatcha eating?”
“Cranberry Orange Peel Raisin Nut Bread”
…yea, a little long; we’ll stick with Grandma’s Cranberry Bread 🙂

This tasted great!  Mine turned out a bit crumbly; but honestly- I’m not a very accurate measurer, and this recipe could be a bit particular.  Nonetheless; it tasted great! It needs no jam or butter!

Update:  The next day it sliced perfectly.  I guess I was a bit anxious!

Doesn’t it look good too?  Reminds me of a Tim Horton’s Fruit Explosion muffin. I should start making loaf pan breads more often!
