Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread

One of the breads that I often bake is a cranberry walnut bread. I love the combination of tart-sweet in a breakfast bread. My husband usually takes a bread to work each day, breakfast bread that is, and this bread is frequently in his lunch! I use orange juice as the liquid to give the bread a little more flavor. I also sprinkle coarse sugar on the top prior to baking. It makes the top of the bread even more inviting. I think the trick for this bread, if there is one, is to make sure to not overbake it. I set the timer for 50 minutes and usually in my oven it is the correct amount of time. With the fall holidays approaching, I figured there might be some bakers out there that are ready to start thinking about what they will be preparing.
