  • I wanted to add notes to this recipe from Madeleine after she made this and posted a picture. Her notes will be helpful for all. She: boiled together 2 cups orange zest, 2 cups water and 1/2 cup sugar for 1/2 hour, then let cool. Then: beat together additional 1/3 cup sugar with remaining ingredients, stir into orange zest and bake 350 for 1 hours Wrap loaf in damp towel for 20 minutes to soften crust. Thanks madeleine.
