One of my favourite quick bread. I have baked this lot of times with different flavours both in sweet and savoury. But this combination is the best. Orange and cranberry pairs well with each other.
Unfortunately we don't get fresh cranberry here in India. So I had to use dried ones. But I am sure the fresh ones would taste much better than this version. This is not really a bread neither a cake. But it is super moist and flavourful.
