I have made this recipe and I really enjoyed making it, too! I admit that I did make adjustments on the recipe for my own tastes, but it is an excellent way to use up apples and oranges!
I have made this bread many times and it is one of my favorites. The flavor is oustanding. I always make sure to purchase an organically grown orange.
These are a nice hearty loaf, tasted great even though I forgot to add the lemon extract. I cut the recipe in half and made mini-loaves.
I made these yesterday and making more today everyone loved it!!!!
I used craisins instead of raisins. Make sure to wash apples and oranges thoroughly before making this. Very moist bread.
