Adopted in September 2006, this quick bread looks simply delicious. The original chef's comment: The glaze made with fresh tangerine juice gives this bread moistness and flavor. The texture is cakelike and it keeps well, too!

What a delightful little bread! Great texture, and just sweet enough to be perfect with a morning cup of coffee. I switched out the walnuts with some miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips, which seemed to work well. And juicing tangerines is an excellent job for pint-sized kitchen assistants helpers!
