Cranberry-Walnut Celebration Bread - BBA Challenge #11

If you like cranberries and walnuts, this week bread is for you.

This dough can be baked in a loaf pan, as freestanding boules or braided.
The braids stacked on top of each other:

Here, the top braid listing to the left. I tried to encourage it back to the right before popping it in the oven but it wouldn't budge.

The crumb shot. This bread had a lot of cranberries and walnuts. It tasted great plain or toasted.
Up next... English muffins.


  1. Very nice. Looks so tasty.
    You will have fun with the English Muffins. :) I loved doing those.
    Great job.

  2. That is some beautiful bread. You did a great job.

  4. Thanks Mustang Terri. Enjoy that english muffin. Mags says it taste great with peanut butter and tomato. I haven't tried that combo yet.

  5. Wow, beautiful loaf, even if it leans slightly. The crumb shots are fantastic.
