    I don't know why but the bread fell in the middle! I have never had this before with a quick bread. Even with all the orange zest and orange juice, there was only a slight orange taste and there are too many nuts in it in mho. I probably will not try this again.

    I cook extensively from Taste Of Home cookbooks and magazines and the cooking times are always very accurate; however, for this bread, I think the cooking times are way off. I checked the bread at 50 minutes and it was very overdone and dried out. I made the recipe again the following day, added a teaspoon of orange extract to increase the orange flavor which I felt was lacking, and checked the bread at 40 minutes. It was much improved, but could have come out even a few minutes earlier.

    I tried this recipe and it quickly became a family favorite. Very easy to make. Excellent as a breakfast bread served with cream cheese.
