Absolutely yummy bread!! I put dried cranberries and chopped pecans along with the sugar and cinnamon before rolling. Made great Christmas gifts! Thanks for the recipe!
Made this to include on my Thanksgiving table this year & it was a total success! And, although I'd intended to freeze one of the loaves, my son & DIL managed to get away with 2/3 of that second loaf, so . . . Absolutely great tasting, though I'll admit that I did use generous measures of the zest throughout the recipe! I'll certainly be making this again & again! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This recipe is AMAZING. It turned out perfectly. I will freeze one loaf and I can't wait to make some french toast out of it!
WOW!!!! This bread is wonderful! I doubled the recipe and got 3 huge loaves and 2 mini loaves. I made it yesterday and we tried it last night with the orange glaze on it. It was great. This morning we had some toasted and put a little butter and orange marmalade on it. YUMMY!!! I am making some more for the freezer today and will probably add some craisins to it. I will also add more cinnamon and sugar since I did not put enough in on the first batch to get the nice swirls(they were very faint) and I want very distinct swirls(cool factor) LOL
I've not made bread sans ABM in a long time, but this was very easy and came together very well. The taste is awsome. I omitted the glaze and we used as toast with butter. Great breakfast.
Delicious! Plus the appearance and texture were perfect as well. I used the whole 6 1/2 cups of flour and kneaded it with the dough hook of my kitchenaide mixer rather than by hand. I froze the second loaf. Thanks Engrossed!
