This was an excellent recipe, but I went with 4 stars only because I made a few changes. I substituted orange juice for the water and added about 2 tsp. of orange zest. Even with the changes, the orange flavor, although present, was not overly strong. The cranberries chewy and adding a nice tang. Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I plan to make it for work this week and for Christmas morning. Thanks for the recipe!


Very nice. For once, I followed the directions to bake in the bread machine and it made for a lovely loaf. However, I'll probably try this in the oven next time--I just prefer oven baked bread. Still, this rose perfectly and baked very well in the bread machine, so it's a great bread for a bread machine. I did modify it slightly and used 1/2 orange juice in place of the water. Delish! Also, a note for anyone using their bread machine for the first or second time . . .if you have a fruit/nut beep, wait to add the craisins until you hear the beep. It works well that way. Thanks for the recipe!


Had to make a few substitutions. I only had enough bread flour to make the recipe so I used 3 C. minus 2TB of it. I also didn't have yogurt so I soured 3/4 C. milk with 1 TB of vinegar. I ALSO didn't have any honey, so I used molasses instead. I threw everything in the bread machine at the beginning as directed and it was fantastic. It smells wonderful and tastes great. I will definitely be making this again!
