    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    I am a big fan of tea breads (or quick breads) and this one has a nice, citrussy quality that is a real treat. This bread does need to sit overnight in order for the flavors to blend; however, I have not included that in the preparation time, so plan accordingly.

      This turned out to be a nice light loaf with a hint of citrus flavor. The whole family is enjoying it but we all wish there was a bit more orange flavor. I used more grated peel than called for (whatever came off the whole orange) and fresh orange juice. I did let it sit (hard to keep everyone away from it!) overnight as you described. The texture is soft and very moist. Overall a recipe I'll try again and maybe just add more grated rind and maybe a orange flavored yogurt in place of the sour cream to add to the citrus punch flavor. Thanks for sharing during the Newest Tag game.
