Cranberry Walnut Orange Bread

I love coming up with new budget recipes! I had some extra oranges, and I had really wanted to try to make orange bread. I decided to modify an Irish soda bread recipe that I came up with a couple of years ago and try to make some orange bread. This was SO good! It was moist and sweet and just delicious! This can easily be modified to make orange muffins.
