This is a wholesome bread studded with cranberries and pine nuts, making for a delicious breakfast or afternoon treat when toasted. Wheatgerm and oats add an extra bit of goodness.
Pinenuts and Craisins go together nicely. Nice taste. I liked it toasted and then spread with butter. I only had 1 cup of Craisins and think 2 might be excessive. I had to use more that 2 cups of flour in order to knead the dough because it was too sticky. Also, this was done in just 30 minutes, 45 to 55 minutes would have burned it. - 22 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
BREAD MACHINE REVIEW: I decided to try at making this in the bread machine and it really did turn out quite well. First of all I added all the wet ingredients, then the dry (even the cranberries and nuts) then turned it to the dough setting. Once it reached the end of the dough cycle, I kneaded a little and dropped in a greased pan. I glazed the top with beaten egg, and cooked in the oven as usual. Great tasting breakfast bread, perfect with a smear of butter! - 10 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used mixed dried fruit instead of just cranberries, and I think the loaves taste great. They didn't rise as high as I thought they would, but their texture is light. Watch the baking time on these though--35 minutes in the oven and mine came close to being burnt. 45 minutes would be way too much time in the oven. - 18 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
