This is a good basic quick bread recipe. I used the orange juice as the liquid and as Jellyqueen suggested, added some orange zest as well. Made a tasty and moist bread. Thanks for sharing, Mae.

This is a really great recipe. It goes together in just a few minutes and makes a beautiful bread. I used the orange juice instead of milk and I like the citrus taste. I think nest time I make this, I am going to add a little orange zest also.
