Amazingly delicious, the perfect breakfast bread! After I zested the orange I juiced it, and added milk to that to make up the 1 cup of liquid called for in the recipe. My favorite way to eat this is with a shmear of cream cheese and then a little orange marmalade on top. My youngest Dornette, Adiya, likes them with chocolate spread inside (chocolate and orange, yummmmm!). Leta, you've added another addiction to this household. I can't wait to try this as a challah!
