  2. Hi, I went to Taste of Home's website as well to look @ their reviews. One person said they increased the oil so I increased it just a bit as well (1/4 cup). I did not use the zest only b/c I didn't have any--and I left out the walnuts only b/c the bread was going to people that I wasn't sure would be allergic (gave to a friend to try with the idea she might share w/ co workers!). She said the bread tasted fabulous but she couldn't taste the orange part much. that may have been my fault for leaving out the zest; I may increase the juice to 1 cup to help that flavor next time. Thank you for sharing!!!
  3. Nice subtle orange flavour with a moist banana loaf!
  4. Can't believe how moist this is with such a small amount of oil. I made one change. Since I was using fresh squeezed OJ, I didn't want to waste the zest of the orange, so I grated it into the bread, for even more orange flavor. Thanks for this keeper. Made for Best of 2012 game.
  5. I made half the recipe and made muffins. I got 12 muffins. I used only 1/2 cup sugar. And I omitted the walnuts. I baked them at 350 F for 25 minutes. Great taste and texture. Thanks Mom2Rose :) Made for the Australian Recipe Swap for May 2012
