Sunshine State Orange Bread

 Sunshine State Orange Bread
This pretty glazed loaf is bursting with fresh citrus flavor. Walnuts add a subtle nuttiness and yummy texture to the moist slices. It's one recipe you can serve year after year, and never tire of it. —Mrs. MRS PRISCILLA Gilbert, IND HBR BCH, Florida
