This was delicious! Fresh squeezed OJ is a must here, the flavor really shines through, and with the tart cranberries it is a winning combination. I had this sitting just as pretty as you please on my counter when unexpected guests arrived. Poof! It was gone! But thoroughly enjoyed, and I'm making another loaf for Hubs and me tomorrow! Thanks for another keeper, WAIGEN! Made for best of 2022 tag.

Quite yummers! We love orange and cranberries and this version is so good. I actually added more than 2 cups cranberries because I wanted to use up the whole bag of cranberries I had in the freezer. I think it was about 2 3/4 or 3 cups. Can't wait to have this again with coffee tomorrow. Make this, you'll like it. Thank you, WAIGEN, for sharing.

I too was concerned about the thickness of the batter, but it was all for not. The bread came out beauteously. I always have quick breads toasted and this was a perfect balance of sweet and tart. Total YUM! Thank you for sharing! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

This cranberry orange bread is really delicious and flavorful. I have to admit that I was a little concerned as the batter was quite thick, but the bread turned out well. The bread is delicious on it's own w/o the icing on top. I decided to use much less sugar for the topping and it worked great for us. I'm not a big "orange" fan in recipes, but I have to admit the orange really complimented this bread. : )
