To me this is the quintessential cranberry-orange nut bread recipe. It was in my mom's original Betty Crocker cookbook and it still rocks. I like to grate fresh orange peel and also use the fresh squeezed juice instead of the milk, but the original recipe is great as is too. I usually make three medium loaves out of it rather than two large ones. I always use the toothpick test as sometimes they take a little longer to cook to the center. They freeze well. It also works as muffins as long as you adjust the baking time.
