quick, easy, tasty- this is a nice breakfast /coffee type bread. the zested orange adds nice color and the nuts give it crunch. i used currants for variety.

Quick, easy, delicious... what's not to like?? I substituted Splenda for the sugar, 1 t orange zest for the orange rind, two egg whites for the egg, and applesauce for the oil... omitted the nuts and used craisins in place of raisins. Because I didn't use actual zest, and there was no sugar to caramelize, my loaf didn't turn that nicely browned color, but it didn't make a difference -- it was wonderful right out of the oven! (We couldn't resist cutting into it; I didn't store it overnight in waxed paper.)

For some reason I found this a little sour, but perhaps I used too much orange zest. The dough didn't hold together well until I added about 1/2 cup of water. The bread itself was still tasty-- moist with a crunchy top. Thanks for the recipe!
