I haven't tried this yet, but I'm posting here so I don't lose this recipe because it looks so good! The recipe comes from The Maple Syrup Cookbook by Ken Haedrich.

I made this recipe using orange zest because I did not have lemon zest in the house. I think I will try lemon next time due to personal taste. The bread was a bit dry, but I would be willing to try again with a bit shorter cooking time.
