MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 29, 2014

This was delicious! I didn't have any cream cheese so I didn't make the spread but will the next time I make this bread again...possibly with Easter dinner? Also wanted to say that I did not put in any nuts due to allergies and that didn't seem to change the texture, etc. at all.

I love this recipe and have made it often, always to rave reviews!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 2, 2011

Used the exact ingredients but used the quick bread method (mix dry ingredients, melted butter and mixed w/ rest of liquid ingredients, stirred liquid into dry) and made into muffins. Delicious and the orange cream cheese really complimented the muffins! Next time though, I think I'll add an extra tablespoon of confectioner's sugar to the cream cheese.

Delicious. I used the juice and pulp from two oranges, and 1/4 tsp of orange peel in place of the extract. Then I baked it all in a 9x5 pan for 1 hour. Whole family loved it and I will definitely be making it again!

Made muffins with this recipe. Grandkids really like it. Didn't make the cream cheese spread. Very easy to make.
