This bread is absolutely amazing!!! I started with the basic dough from the book "Artisan Breads in 5 Minutes a Day" and then started to play around. This is a deliciously sweet (not too sweet, though) bread loaded with nuts and cranberries and then topped off with brown sugar and almond crust. This is very close to the bread from "When Pigs Fly" except it doesn't cost $7 a loaf. This comes together very easily, so don't let the long list turn you off. This makes 4 loaves. The original recipe could be set aside in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, allowing you to make a loaf when you liked. I'm not sure this would work, since I haven't tried it. Also, I like to use non stick foil, but feel free to use a pizza stone instead (with corn meal to avoid sticking). UPDATE: I have changed the order around a bit, since it seems that there was an unexpected fermentation between the yeast and the cranberries.
