Sweet Orange Bread

Quick and easy orange bread recipe

This week I’m sharing a few variations of my favorite sweet bread recipe. I love them because I can make them for last minute gifts when invited to lunch with friends during the holidays, neighbor gifts, teacher gifts, hostess gifts, you name it. You can also save a loaf for yourself for breakfast! This simple and sweet orange bread was inspired by one of my favorite sugar scrub recipes. I love the soft, citrus flavor and scent during the holidays.
