I know I’m a day late for my last Orange recipe. I tried so hard to get it posted yesterday but I just didn’t make it. This food photography stuff is a hard gig! I think I may have saved the best for last with this Glazed Orange Bread recipe. It was fun to make and uses basic ingredients. It calls for the zest of 4 oranges which was really my favorite part of the whole thing!

This glazed orange bread is unbelievably flavorful and moist. It ranks right up there with the Starbucks Lemon Loaf I shared last month. In fact, I’m not sure I could pick a favorite. They are both seriously good. I was able to get 8 mini loaves and 2 small loaves. If you use regular loaf pans there would be enough batter for two.
I’m quite certain that you could skip the sugar syrup step and not even miss it. I’m not sure it really added much because it slipped right off the loaves. There was more syrup on my cookie sheet than stayed on the bread.
Now it’s time for true confessions. (Don’t laugh…)
When I was finished with this project, my kitchen looked like a bomb had gone off. There were dishes and pans everywhere. There was white stuff all over my floor. (Not sure if it was flour or powdered sugar!)
I was tired because I didn’t even start until after dinner. For a brief second I thought to myself that perhaps the mess wasn’t worth it. However, that was before I tasted the bread. With my first bite I knew, without a doubt, that whatever I had to go through to make this bread was a small price to pay for the outcome.
Oh. My. Gosh.
I will be making this bread again…and again. Once I started to clean everything up it went pretty fast and ended up not being so bad. I have a terrible habit of not putting things away and tidying up while I am putting a recipe together. I need to get better at that so I’m not so strung out at the end!
I packaged up the mini loaves in cellophane bags and will be delivering them to my parents and a few friends. I learned my lesson with the Orange Fluff. I will not be eating all of the orange bread myself.
I’m not sure if I’ll be back over the weekend or not. I’m working on a giveaway with a very special blogger and need to get things figured out. This orange bread was such a distraction! Thanks for stopping by…hope you have a lovely weekend.
