This is a lovely bread machine recipe. The loaf came out tender and delicious.
I adjusted this recipe to fit my 1 lb. Zojirushi mini (used 1/2 of all the ingredients) and it was fantastic! I used a lot less butter, only about 1 TBSP, and it turned out fine. Also, I added a bit more flour during kneading because it was a little too sticky. My machine doesn't have a "sweet bread" setting so I set it on "soft" and it came out perfectly golden and moist.
Delicious! Just made this this morning and what a nice change from my usual abm loaf! I subbed applesauce for margarine and the result was good. I did add the orange zest and I have to say I really think this is what makes it special. Thanks for a great new recipe!
