  4. Bake in the preheated oven 65 to 70 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted at center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes, remove to wire rack and cool completely before serving.

Excellent. I doubled the recipe and it turned out great. When doubling, I used the entire bag of fresh cranberries (12 oz.) This is the recipe that comes off of the the Ocean Spray bag. Great bread for the holidays. TIP - Be sure to cover the bread tightly with foil once it comes out of the oven for about 10-15 min. It will steam and keep the bread super moist - a trick for all loaf quick breads.



We were so impressed with this recipe that I've decided to finally review a recipe here after using this site for nearly 2 years! This is a phenomenal bread. The base is wonderful and can be used with a variety of different fruits - strawberry, blueberry, cherry, dried mix, etc. We prefer it without nuts and make it exactly as given except we use halved cranberries rather than whole. We've used both fresh and frozen with no difference in quality. When my husband first made this I was skeptical because I thought it would need more sugar and some other spices like cinnamon. I was wrong! The flavor is perfect as is. The orange juice and zest give a sweetness and complexity that is just heavenly. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe with us!



I have made this recipe several times and everyone loves it. I have also made it with fresh bing cherries and it was a hit.
