I like this recipe because the orange juice gives the nut bread such a unique flavor and also makes it moist.

"This is one of the best banana breads I have ever made. Super moist and very flavorful. Only had 1 cup of white sugar so added quarter cup light brown, recipe was very forgiving. Made 4 small loaves ,baked for 25 minutes, turned out great!

Thank you,I will definitely make again."

"An absolute 10 ! Have yet to find anyone who didn't like this - even used the nutritional facts for those on weight watchers to be able to figure their points. (Which is 4 points per slice.)"

"Great with whole wheat flour. I used 4 bananas. I think next time I will add some grated orange peel for a bit more orange taste.

"I recently made an orange bread recipe and since I like banana bread, I started thinking how good the two would be together. I searched for a recipe and found this one, but I was surprised to find that the taste wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Too fruity, in a "child's fruity toothpaste" kind of way. Other people liked it though, so I guess it just shows how our tastebuds are all different."
