Top Review by Jenna Naquin

Oh dear me. I made this for breakfast last weekend and we could barely wait for it to come out of the oven. Wonderful smell. We let it cool slightly but ate it warm with a little drizzle of melted butter. The orange and cinnamon flavors were pure heaven. The bread had a very tender texture. Awesome in our opinion. Thank you Nurse di.
