Orange Potato Bread

Top Review by mianbao

This one is hard to rate. The dough was quite thick, and resulted in a dense, not so sweet, but fragrant bread. There is much less oil than in most quick bread recipes, and eaten as is, I would not give it any higher than 4 stars. However, lightly toasted and buttered (British style?), this bread becomes definitely worthy of 5 stars. If you make it, please try it that way and see. I put some sliced candied kumquats on the top of the bread in the picture, and omitted the vanilla, because I think it distracts in fruit breads. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. It was interesting.
