Waikiki Orange Bread

Nancy Allen


This is a wonderful orange bread and the orange peels are as soft as the bread. There was a restaurant on the island of Waikiki that was known for this bread. It can be frozen for up to 2 months. You can switch it up and use lemon peels or a combination of both. Enjoy this bread!
