This bread smells wonderful when baking. It's refreshing and light. Next time I would add chopped dark chocolate to make it even more irresistable.


Excellent! So easy to make. I did use splenda instead of white sugar, and margerine instead of shortening. I made it in one regular-size loaf pan and it was done baking in 25 minutes. My first time making and eating orange bread. It was delicious!


This recipe was easy to make and tasted great! It's pretty forgiving, too - I used pecans instead of walnuts and it tasted fine!
