Ok, I made this recipe today, with a couple of alterations. We spent thanksgiving with some friends, who have citrus trees all over their property limes,lemons,and oranges. I brought home an abundance of oranges, didn't have a clue what I was going to do with them. Instead of making a loaf, I made muffins. I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of adding 8 oz. of cream cheese with the butter and egg. Reading the reviews I took the advice of others and poked holes in the tops coming out of the oven after 38 minutes and poured the glaze over the muffins. They turned out very moist and delicious. Don't know if I'll make again, only because I'm not the best baker in the world and wanted to use up the oranges, but they were fun to make. I think a powder sugar glaze or a cream cheese frosting with orange zest would be better than the juice sugar glaze.
this is a fantastic recipe i uploaded 2 of my photos from it i made it tonight with a couple variations to the recipe you can see the one in the picture i just uploaded after they get approved lol. the one variation i did was i used in the cake i used the rind from 2 oranges and the way i do it is to cut the rind off with a knife and hand chop it instead of using a zester, added that to give it tons of that bursting flavor that the peel gives it then i also used for the glaze the rind from half an orange and a bit more sugar to make it a little sweeter as i found the recipe to be a little blah for the glaze the nice thing about doing this was that it gives the loaf a little spark seeing those candied pieces of orange rind scattered around on top of the loaf making it a little more snazzy looking lol. i hope someone else will try my glaze suggestion as it really does look great and adding that extra orange rind to the loaf makes it just explode orange flavor in your mouth with every bite enjoy!
