Top Review by bakedapple42

This is a very good quick bread. It held together well for a gluten-free baked good, not too crumbly. The only suggestion I have is to use all orange juice and leave out the lemon juice, as I felt that the lemon overpowered the other flavors. Other then that, it was a great recipe, thanks for sharing! Posted for 2013 Spring Pick-A-Chef.
