Cranberry Orange Bread
This low fat cranberry orange bread is particularly nice served warm. It makes a perfect sweet snack for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Since it uses only a small quantity of oil, the texture is cake-like, and very satisfying.

Great Holiday Recipie, Member ctkent2

I really loved this bread. I did make some adjustments by substituting Splenda for half of the sugar and added some cinnamon, allspice and clove to give some more flavor. I sliced the bread very thin, toasted it and added some low-fat margarine.
