I dont like blueberries BUT DS does. He claimed the loaf as his and asked how long will it take to make another. I think that means 5 stars Nan..TY
Delicious! Like another comment posted here, I did have a little trouble with the middle getting done and was afraid it would burn until it did! However, it turned out just right! This was more like a pound cake than bread. I didn't put much orange zest in it, but the orange flavor was definitely there! The glaze just added to the goodness. Thanks for this recipe!
I really like the orange in this. I found it to be a wee bit dry though.
