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.

This bread is very delicious. It filled the house with wonderful smells while it was baking. Had a delicate orange and cinnamon flavor. My parents are coming for a visit in a couple of weeks and I plan on making this while they are here.

Orange and cinnamon are such a wonderful flavor combination. This bread really highlighted that. Did not fall apart when I sliced it but was still very soft. I made this for Sunday brunch and we all enjoyed it. 5-stars and a big thank-you.
