Top Review by Chef Petunia

I just made this after looking at the side of the box of cake mix. I had to make slight alterations due to lack of ingredients but I think my changes turned out pretty good. I only had a box of vanilla pudding that had added mini chocolate chips but the chocolate chips went very well with the orange. I didn't add the pecans because we are not fond of nuts in desserts. Also, I only got one loaf out of mine. This would be perfect for brunch or breakfast. Thank you for sharing.
