YUMMO!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This orange quick bread reminds us of a super-rich pound cake with a subtle orange flavor. The loaf is super moist and tender - almost has a creamy texture. Nuts add a little texture and feel free to add more if you love nutty bread. Drizzling orange juice on the top crust was our favorite part. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
