    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.  -  29 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  03 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was easy to make and tasted great! It's pretty forgiving, too - I used pecans instead of walnuts and it tasted fine!  -  24 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
