Orange-Cranberry Bread

This is the same bread recipe as below. I just grated some orange zest into it and then added dried cranberries into it and the kneaded it well.


Mama: Easy to make... I made this for my parents SO no real verdict... I forgot to ask...oops. My Mom is paying 5.25 a loaf at the specialty bakery so she wanted me to try making it. Homemade always tastes better, has better ingredients and is much, much, much! cheaper. Hopefully it tastes good. :0)
