Cranberry Bread

I think this would make a lovely addition to your Thanksgiving table or Autumn baking. The combination of cranberries and orange are lovely together. The sweetness of the orange tempers the tart cranberries. I don’t know about the addition of cheddar cheese, but it probably works really well – people swear by cheddar cheese on their apple pie, although I have not tried it myself. Note the long standing period – this is not bread to serve straight out of the oven.
