“I came up with this recipe myself. I hope you like it. It isn't as sweet as some quick breads because of the cranberries, but I like the tartness. Let me warn you, though. It smells really good fresh out of the oven, but PLEASE let it sit overnight in the refrigerator before trying it. When it is still warm, but flavors haven't blended and it is extremely tart. The longer it's allowed to sit, the better it gets. We had this for Thanksgiving and I received several compliments on it. Prep time is an estimate. Enjoy!”
