First time making this bread and it turned out very nice! Good crumb to the loaf and it rose nice. I'm always looking for a good flavorful bread to freeze to use for a bread pudding recipe later. I think I'll make an extra loaf of this next time just for that purpose.

My family and I really liked this bread. The tangy craisins and marmalade are a great combination. On the second loaf, however, I used orange juice as the liquid instead of cranberry juice. I also added 1/2 cup almonds that I sliced. We liked the orange juice better and it's also easier to buy in small amounts or have on hand whenever you want to make the recipe and I always like nuts.

I tried this recipe out, had to adlib some due to lack of ingredients. I substituted the marmelade for peach and pineapple preserves, and dry milk for dry buttermilk, it was de-lish.
It's ok to cheat a little by using convenience foods in your cooking. Refrigerated crescent roll dough comes in very handy in recipes like cheddar spinach appetizer squares, mini pepperoni rolls, or simple bear claws.
