This is my most asked-for recipe. I've used it for many years, which is obvious from my recipe card that's yellowed and full of stains. The fruity appearance and taste of this easy-to-make bread blend beautifully with our warm Florida sunshine. It's always a hit whenever I serve it.

MY REVIEW

"The bread was moist, not dry. It's not exceptional to me. One has to really like apricots to enjoy this."

"This turned out awesome, I used coconut milk mixed with a bit of water because I didn't have any orange juice and it was fab."

MY REVIEW

"This was very yummy. I also added the orange pulp left after squeezing the oranges for juice, but I didn't really get a sense of orange flavour in the bread. I will definitely make again and again."
