“This super moist bread gives you the best of both worlds. It's a great way eat a little healthier without sacraficing great taste. This bread is a little on the sweet side, but I feel that it complements the cranberry orange flavor perfectly. The whole wheat pastry flour is a softer grain of wheat & produces a lighter texture than regular whole wheat flour. I used Enova Oil which claims to be one of the healthier oils, but recipezaar didn't recognize that ingredient so I listed safflower oil which is very similar. (Enova is made with soybean oil which some are allergic to.)You may want to use slightly less than 1/3 cup oil. Orange peel is in the spice section. Best served warm - reheat leftovers in microwave 30 seconds.”
