Haven't tried this yet, but love the fact that it makes one MINI loaf! For us single folks, so much easier than always trying to cut down a larger recipe. I give it 5 stars just for that!
This was good, but I wanted more lemon flavor so I substituted lemon juice for the orange juice and add lemon zest instead of lemon extract. This for a small mini loaf. You will need to double or triple the recipes. The recipe does double easily.
This is very soft, tasty, with a nice crust!
I would note to people that the recipe is for a MINI loaf and I think most people would rather have a regular-sized loaf. I just doubled everything and it turned out great. Also, I would personally like a bit more lemon taste just to the plain loaf itself, if going without a glaze.
This is a wonderful recipe that I will surely make many times and recommend to others. Thank-you.
