Nice subtle orange flavour with a moist banana loaf!
Can't believe how moist this is with such a small amount of oil. I made one change. Since I was using fresh squeezed OJ, I didn't want to waste the zest of the orange, so I grated it into the bread, for even more orange flavor. Thanks for this keeper. Made for Best of 2012 game.
I made half the recipe and made muffins. I got 12 muffins. I used only 1/2 cup sugar. And I omitted the walnuts. I baked them at 350 F for 25 minutes. Great taste and texture. Thanks Mom2Rose :) Made for the Australian Recipe Swap for May 2012
