This may well qualify as the WORST picture I have on this blog. Oh my goodness I should just take it off. You see, this bread gave me a little bit of trouble last week. First time making this recipe of my grandmother's. Instead of putting the bread in a large loaf pan, I poured it into two small loaf pans. The batter was JUST about gone when the two pans were about full. I knew I shouldn't pour any more batter into them, but it just didn't seem like I had enough to fill a third pan!!
Silly me. They definitely over-flowed. All over the oven racks and oven floor. Luckily I noticed it before any real damage was done and put a baking sheet on the bottom rack to catch any remaining drippings. Hence, the lack of this bread's beauty.
BUT, it did not matter. This is my new favorite bread. Ever. It is SO good. So incredibly moist and flavorful. The orange juice and cranberries compliment each other so well! My family and hubby also raved about it. Wow. I want to make it again right now. New. Favorite. Recipe. Just make sure you don't over-fill the pans. Yup.
