    Nice crust and a tender inside crumb ~ though only a very slight orange flavor! Made with brown sugar, 2 1/2 cups bread flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten, and 1 teaspoon orange extract, along with the juice and zest ~ I wanted it very orangey! Preheated the oven to 400F, then baked eight little slashed loaves instead of a large loaf, at 375F for 18 minutes. Made for Spring Photo Tag 2012.
