Cinnamon-Orange Swirl Bread Recipe

I've been making this recipe for more than 14 years and have modified it through the years. I won second place at our state fair in 1990 with this recipe. I didn't mind taking second, because my best friend finished first!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings
