A very moist delicious bread. This makes five small or two regular sized loaves.

There is such a burst of orange, you get out of the glaze, that you don't need much orange flavoring to the bread itself, I didn't want to take away from the Blueberry flavor..mmmmmmmm enjoyed mine with a hot cup of coffee...

I think my boy would rather have this for his birthday; than a cake!
